I was planning on posting a photo of my ring with a caption along the lines of “we are engaged and so excited!!”
However, I was reading around and a lot of people have strong opinions on this.
I would not be posting to show off, simply to announce, but would it be perceived as showing off?

@Gabthebee: I think the strong opinions are related to people who do it OVER and OVER again… One post right when you get engaged is fairly expected and cute in my book.

It depends what side of this you are on. Personally I am dissapointed when someone does not post a photo of the ring. I don’t see it at materialistic or attention-grabbing.
I porbably would not use it for the announcement, maybe put it up a few days later.

i always look for the ring pic along with a picture of the happy couple! I don’t see a problem with posting one pic when you get engaged!

I think one pic is fine! We waited til the day after our engagement to announce it on FB (wanted to tell family first)…we posted a pic that FI took right after I said yes of the ring. I said something like “my prince charming asked me to be his princess” or something like that. It was fun…and it was a cool way to let everyone know 😉 And he was proud..both of the ring (he should be) and the pix he took 🙂

Why is this considered “showing off”? I think FB is the fastest way to let everyone know! I would recommend texting/calling all your friends and family who are close i.e. you would call/text to tell them ANY exciting information. For example, I would never post my ring without calling my parents, sisters, gparents, etc, but that’s just me. Who is important to you? After the VIPs get the details on the phone… Post away! The only people who have negative things to say after that are probably jealous they don’t have a ring… Just saying 😉

I like seeing a newly engaged couple’s ring and am usually annoyed when they DON’T post one lol! Even though I would happily look at 10+ pictures, you may want to limit it to like one or two on FB and save the glam shots for Instagram or WB!

I like seeing the ring the day of the engagement. Maybe a ring/band shot on the wedding day. But I would never post pics on FB like I do here, haha

1 or 2 pics is totally fine I think! I expect a ring now if people get engaged, lol.

@Gabthebee: There is nothing wrong with posting on FB, my FI posted my ring on FB when he asked me through the sight along with a f2f. I did not know he posted on FB until my phone kept bleeping, when I turned around he was on one knee with the ring..

@Gabthebee: Do you want to post a picture? If you do then go right ahead. Post two if you want to, who the heck should judge?
When it comes to FB people tend to get overly involved and opinionated in the actions and decisions of others. I don’t get it really.
I posted a photo right after and considering I have many friends and family members 500+ miles away the photo was appreciated.

I am with everybody ese about this question…and think that one picture at the time of engagement is fine…But psoting it over and over again is silly…
I didn’t post a single picture because my FI thought it will look like I am showing off…and also, in his country people don’t buy rings with very big diamonds…and my center is over 2ct…But I posted it here…which satisfied my urge for sharing 😀

One picture after getting engaged? Totally normal!
An entire album updated twice a week with your ring displayed on different objects? Showing off.
