Again if people do not want to see pictures of your ring, car, kid, drunk party etc then that person should not be on facebook
If you do not like people who post status on facebook then maybe it is not the place for you
same thing with Zynga games – either block them or stay of facebook
I AM SO TIRED OF THE KILLJOYS – facebook is a social place – if you do not like how people socialize then why are you on it. What is acceptable to post of facebook?
Honestly I can understand things that are not acceptable in polite society should not be posted but life’s events and happenings is the whole DANG reason facebook exists.
GEEZ! Get over it.

I don’t think people really mean to brag; I think people are just excited and want to share that they’re engaged. I’m happy for them.

Alright – since I am old and senile you two smartypants give me a list of what I am allowed to post on facebook and I will be happy to share this with the other people on facebook – please do tell what are the rules for anything you are allowed to post

I posted mine. Not to brag or anything. My facebook is private for friends and family only and I have lots of friends in other states as well as family, so I used it as a way to share the news of the engagement with everyone

I wasnt actually the one to post mine. A bunch of our friends were there and were taking pictures of us while it was all happening and it was during our trip to England so it was part of her album! But I dont see anything wrong with it people who might not be around you are going to want to see it. I just think pictures dont do my ring justice so definitely like showing it in person more!

I posted mine at the same time that I changed my fb relationship status. I made it my profile picture for a little while, in fact (later I wrote out the story of our proposal in a note and posted a picture in there, too). I didn’t think of it as tacky, though. I know I love seeing people’s engagement rings and how they fit their personalities (mine wasn’t very blingy so I doubt anyone thought I was “bragging”).
Maybe some of it is just my generation, though (I was a younger 20s bride)….

You can post whatever you want and makes you comfortable. 🙂 I’m just saying, I like when someone says exactly what they mean.

@unixfairy: you ain’t on my facebook.

I’m pretty sure I’m bombarded with hundreds of images of everyone’s babies/kids when I get on fb, and I don’t have/want children. Am I offended by it? NO, because that is thier life! And I want to know about it, otherwise I wouldn’t be on facebook (duh)
Sooo, they can look at my one damn ring picture when a life changing thing like my ENGAGEMENT happens! Or not if they don’t want to. I think you have to be pretty miserable or just jealous to get offended over a photo of a piece of jewelry that represents love COME ON.

I voted “other” ’cause I didn’t post a pic of it… My guy did! Right after we got engaged, we were on our way to breakfast with my folks and he snapped a photo with his iPhone & posted that sucker up on facebook. Not for bragging or anything, really… but just because we were excited 🙂

If the argument is I want to tell everyone “we’re engaged” a status change suffices. Perhaps even a message in the normal feed would. So it isn’t about annoucing because there are several ways to announce the happy news.
Post # 104
I posted mine on FB because:
1) It was custom made and took well over a month to be made so I was proud to say I finally had it. Several people didn’t believe I was engaged or refused to mention it because I didn’t have a ring.
2) FH’s family asked to see it and FB was a convenient way to share it. I’ve never met them before (his parents live in another country and his siblings live way way out west) so I was very happy that they were so interested and excited to see it!
3) FH was sooo proud he bought me a ring. He looks at the pictures and smiles to himself all the time.

I did- but only because it was included in the huge album that I had from our vacation. My Fiance proposed while we were on vacation in Cuba, so I had taken one picture of the ring in a shell, and that ended up on facebook, but I think that’s it.
Oh nvm, there is one more that my photographer took during our engagement shoot that I included in an album. lol
Guilty I guess! It was more to just include a moment or a nice photo in an album, rather than to push the “we just got engaged” thing.
