To be honest, I don’t think people would really notice unless it is a close up of the ring. When I’m on facebook, if a vacation photo from someone else pops up, if I look at it at all, I just tend to look at the background – where they’re staying, or at what they’re doing, rather than scrutinising the people themselves.

ETA: In case you’re wondering, the first photo of my fiance and I posted on facebook following our engagement was us at paintball a few weeks later. We’re shooting each other, which is kinda loving, I guess…? Wink

It was probably a random bar pic from months later.  The pics we took immediately after the proposal were for the “private collection” (aka we both looked awful in them!)

i never posted anything. A friend did post one of the night we got engaged. And i look AWFUL because i had be crying! Doesnt matter though. 

I think one of you both holding your ring hand is fine. Honestly i dont see the need to blast it on facebook. Half the people you dont actually know anymore.  And the ones that matter will call or something. 

Hahah can you tell i kind of hate facebook? If i could i would delete it.

I posted a shot taken of us in the random hotel room corner where he proposed, me with the hugest grin and holding up my hand, and him looking all pleased with himself.  It’s cute 🙂  Sorry I didn’t put it up – he hates the idea of being on “the interwebs” and so I try not to put pix of him up toooo much.

We didn’t even announce our engagement on facebook.  By the time we told everyone in person who we wanted to tell, it seemed like old news and kind of AWing.  I am weird about facebook though.

@SarahSmilesDec28:  Haha me too. I called all my friends and family personally. I actually deleted my FB account to make sure none of them found out if someone posted something.  So it was like 5 days later and all the people i cared about already knew.

We called & texted our family & friends first, then uploaded this photo to facebook & we both changed our relationship status at the same time.
