I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. Just accept the congratulations and be happy. 🙂

I announced our engagement on Facebook by changing my relationship status. It doesn’t mean you have to announce “hey everyone I finally have a ring on my finger. the wedding date is _____ and our colors are ____, ____, ____, and blah blah”. I think it is perfectly okay to let your FB relationship status change do the talking and BoiledPnut is right! Accept the congrats and be happy!

Lol… don’t worry about what people think. FB is lightning fast… it’s too late to try to put the cat back in the bag! Just enjoy the good wishes as they come.
After Fi proposed to me, I waited to change the status because we were on our phones to our parents, siblings, etc. The second I changed it, my phone started blowing up. It will die down after a week or so… promise!

@chesseplease: Who cares? Its not something you should be ashamed of and people can block your status updates if they dont want to hear about it.

Right after he proposed we made it “facebook official”. We took my ring to get resized and figured, why not? We are happy about it! I would enjoy the congratulations. It is never too early to start getting them.

“Too soon” for congratulations? I don’t think any such thing exists, and you should just enjoy it!

Just enjoy all the congrats and fun messages. As long as you got to tell the people you wanted to in person/on the phone, just let the news spread like wildfire 🙂 It will die down, I promise.
But be forewarned, I had about 200+ notifications for messages and posts, Mr.ND only had 10 or so. You will be bombarded for a bit, I’d shut off your notifications to your phone if you have them 😉

I wouldnt worry what people think, but ignore it for now if you want and enjoy your engagement. Its just information travels so fast now days with the internet and social networking sites.

An hour or so after we got engagement and after I had called my Mom, sister, and Boyfriend or Best Friend I changed my relationship status on FB thinking he had to approve it first. WRONG. I was getting some phone calls after that, haha. My Dad was a little miffed he found out on FB, but hey what are you going to do.

We didn’t change our facebook statuses for a couple days, and we asked our family and closest friends to keep it private. But within two days, we had posts on our walls, so we went fully public. For us, it was nice to get to tell the most important people, but then just have it out there for everyone else.
No one thinks you told absolutely everyone. Good news travels fast, especially on facebook. Everytime I see a “congratulations” post I automatically assume someone’s engaged, and if turns out to be true, I add my well wishes. It’s just how it goes these days, don’t sweat it.

I changed my FB status from Involved to Engaged when Darling Husband and I got home from the jewelry store thinking no one would notice. WRONG, I started getting congratulations right away, so I had to quickly call my mom to tell her, before she found out other people knew about it before she did!!

LOL! My engagement had over 20 people present so needless to say as I was STILL at the engagement site people were calling my phone off the hook and I got home to 40 FB notifications and 25 Twitter congratulatory mentions. ALL of my friends and brothers that were present uploaded mobile pics and msgs to FB and Twitter, sooo yeah it was VERY overwhelming. My roommate called me like one hour after it happened and yelled at me for not telling her and I was just like OMG…I’m still shaking…I’m not thinking about calling anybody! So I know what you mean I do wish I had a few days to soak it in but dont worry just dont lose sight of the joy and happiness you feel! Dont get overwhelmed!
