    I despise tacky. It is an awful world. Well, actually it means something mildly sticky, so NO, there is nothing mildly sticky about posting your ring picture on FB. However, I also see nothing braggish about posting your ring on FB, I mean, if you are never on and suddenly up pops this 20 carat thing, then maybe. But if you are like me and use FB with some frequency, I think it would be unusual NOT to post it. I always am sad when newly engaged friends don’t because lots of my FB friends aren’t local so I won’t get to see it otherwise.

    If you are excited, you can post about your engagement; but posting abou material possessions, even an engagement ring could be seen as tacky since it involves money. If I got a new job, I would post about it, but not my salary.

    meh, I posted a pic of mine in an album. I don’t live near most of my family and they were all going to badger me about it anyway. I don’t think you should make it your profile pic or anything.

    facebook + wedding stuff = bad idea in general

    I’ll say its “eye rolly” since I think the word tacky is way over used on this board.   Not everyone will be as excited as you about getting engaged- especially about the ring.  Show it to people who want to see it, and enjoy that!

    I don’t like it. Just post about he engagement and leave the ring, which shouldn’t be the focus of the engagement, out of it.

    I posted mine in an album called “summer 2009” or something like that since that’s when the engagement happend.  It was somewhere in the middle so that if people looked through my album, they would see it, but that was the only way.  It wasn’t posted directly on my page, but still accessible!

    I wouldn’t do it.. but I don’t mind when anyone else does. Unless there’s like a whole album just of ring pictures.

    I don’t think it is an issue at all. If I didn’t care enough to see someone’s e-ring, why are we “friends” on FB anyway? Plus people can always keep scrolling, it is not obligatory that someone click on it and ogle it if they don’t want to.

    I posted one picture of mine when we announced our engagement and then posted another one of mine & DH’s wedding bands (on our hands — a pic we took on the honeymoon) and used it to say, “It’s official! We’re married!” It was well-received considering I had a TON of friends comment and/or like it. If someone didn’t like it they are more than welcome to keep scrolling, or hell, delete me! *End Rant*

    ETA: I agree that like a whole album dedicated to a ring is over the top and, dare I say, “tacky.” But one picture? Nope.

    I wouldn’t call it ‘tacky’ but I do agree with your Fiance. I’ve seen way too many people lately announce their engagement with a ring pic on FB – it looks like a herd of diamonded sheep after a while and also gives the impression the only purpose of the proposal was in fact to post a pitcure of a ring on FB.

    Rise above girl, rise above.

    I chose not to because personally I don’t care for it.

    I posted mine on facebook. Everybody else does, why shouldn’t you lol. The real reason I posted mine though was because I got engaged away from home and my family and friends wanted to see it, so instead of texting everyone a photo or making them wait a week (which wasn’t going to happen) I just posted a photo of FB.

    I posted one cause my long-distance family and friends wanted to see it.
