@Jacquelinesc84:  my coworkers are all men, so they didn’t really notice – the office manager is a girl so I showed her the ring which caused a little excitement but generally my office is pretty blah about the whole thing.  My friends, i called a couple, texted a couple.  You could always send an e-card for Christmas with the sound file embedded – ‘great news for the holidays’ and get it out there that way.  Or put a note in your Christmas cards (assuming you send them)

I plan to personally call my family to tell them, text groups of close friends with a picture and the news, and let everyone else hear through Facebook. I doubt I would say anything to my coworkers unless someone happens to notice! A coworker of mine recently got engaged and he announced it at a firmwide meeting on Monday morning. That kind of made me cringe, but then again, I don’t like all of the attention being on me so that would make me uncomfortable.

For your friends who aren’t on facebook, I think it depends on how close you are with them. If they are more like acquaintances, I think that hearing through the grapevine is fine.
