Why would that have anyting to do with the seriousness of their relationship? My fianće and I don’t have any pictures with each other’s familys on FB and I’d say we’re pretty darn serious….

Some people don’t post a lot on facebook. Are you questioning the authenticity of their relationship?

Not everyone feels the need to share everything on Facebook.  Whether or not they’re in a serious relationship’s really just between them anyways.

@MistySoda:  +1

 

@Ap2010:  The two have nothing to do with each other. My SO & I live together and are extremely serious. We see each other’s families all the time but I don’t think I have a single picture with his sisters or mom and I’ve never taken a picture of him with any of my family except my baby nephew because we babysit him a lot. Why are you trying to judge how serious someone else’s relationship is anyway? You can’t just ASK your friend if they’re serious?

I don’t really have many photos of myself with FI’s family, and there are very few of FI with mine. How is posting pictures on Facebook with each other’s families a reflection on the serious of their relationship?!

It isn’t a big deal and I wouldn’t concern yourself with somebody else’s relationship.

I fail to see how facebook photo posting is in any way indicative of how serious a relationship is.

Is this what the “next generation” has become? “If it’s not on facebook, it’s not valid!”

Considering I have no pictures of me with my better half’s family, including his kids,on my Facebook and we are married, I would say its completely meaningless. Some people prefer to experience life first hand and not through the view finder of a camera. Some people don’t need to plaster every aspect of their lives on Facebook.

I pooped this morning. Just because no one read about it or saw pictures of it on Facebook doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

My facebook doesn’t even say I’m in a relationship… Life extends beyond the Internet and not everyone else needs to know about it.

Amazing as it may sound, not everyone uses Facebook as an indicator of anything. Let alone whether a relationship is valid or not. In fact, most people I know would laugh, derisively at the very idea that Facebook should be taken with even a smidgeon of seriousness.

Facebook means nothing in the long run.

@Hyperventilate:  LOL I like to harass my friends saying “PICS OR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN!!” But really, this question is really weird to me and I’m someone who uses social media A LOT. Honestly, the only time my family poses for pictures is the holidays when family from out of town comes to visit. I’m not going to take a picture when my SO & I have dinner at my cousin’s house, which happens several times a month… and I think that makes us “closer” to her than to the out of town people I would have pictures of. Odd.

I see FI’s family several times a month and I think there’s maybe one photo that someone posted of me with FI’s mom, none with any other family members.
