A video of my engagement ring would be the most boring ass video ever posted.

I think it totally fine and NORMAL to post a picture and the news of a new engagement on Facebook. Nowadays, social networks like Facebook, Twitter, etc., are major ways people stay in contact with friends & family….but a video? I think that too much! I can’t imagine how entertaining a video of an object could be! LOL!

@deliciousappleblue: completely agree!  why buy a ring that size if you can’t even afford a camera that stays in focus for the duration of the video?!  lol

Great thread!

I think a video would be okay.  Technology advances so quickly and with it so do our customs.  How ridiculous we would seem to our former selves with our cell phone apps and forum threads.

I heard a piece on NPR this morning about how the profession of documentary photographer is a disappearing occupation because with the abundance of cell phone cameras and video recorders, people aren’t as reliant on photographers anymore. Who knows?  In a couple of years still pictures may hit the dust pile and videos could be the new norm.  Then that girl with the Facebook ring video will just seem like she was ahead of her time!

Overall, I think people should feel free to be themselves.  If they’re thrilled with their ring enough to post a video, I’d watch it and be glad my friend/ family member is in a happy phase in their lives.  Surely we all can agree that there are bigger concerns in the world than if so and so posted a video instead of a picture on her social networking site.

Life’s short – let’s celebrate it!  Pass the popcorn and the ring porn videos please!

@Baileyh: No kidding.  I didn’t watch the whole thing either, I just thought “why is this video still going?” and when I looked down it was only a quarter of the way through!  That’s absurd.

I posted a grainy cell phone picture when it first happened but not a video. That being said, if a girl is that excited when she gets her ring, I wouldn’t judge her for posting a video of it. I may or may not watch it and I wouldn’t post a video myself but everyone has different levels of excited. ๐Ÿ˜‰

IMO a video of the ring as well as footage of the couple is alright (: I’d probably watch someone’s ring video out of curiousity haha. However I do think that a video of just a ring is too much and I think it might be taken the wrong way by a lot of people.

Hmm…when we got engaged he had everyone positioned and armed with cameras and my sister armed with the video camera. The whole proposal is on video but I’m pretty sure there is not even a shot of the ring. To post the video on our wedding website, I had to upload it to YouTube but it’s set to “Private-Only those with link can see” so you can’t even find the video of our proposal unless you access it from our wedding website. We’re not even planning to share our wedding website on facebook (though this might change) so who see’s the video are likely family and close friends since we’ll be sharing our website on our STD’s. These are the people we want to see the video. Of course, I realize this is very different than posting a video of the strictly the ring.

We don’t even have a picture of the ring (okay, there is one picture but you can’t see any detail, it’s just a shiny blur) on facebook. I plan to post of few of the ring here on WB only because I was playing with my new camera!

So my opinion, VIDEO of the ring is [email protected]! And more than 3 or 4 pics of the ring is also a little much.

@mollyib:

I agree that the proposal on video would be cute, if you don’t mind attention! Lol  A video of the actual inanimate object itself is….weird.  I’ve never seen this yet on facebook but if I do I’d take my friend to task over it ๐Ÿ˜›

a video would be extremely tacky! It’s like saying “Who cares that he proposed, look at MY RING!!!!!”. I would have clicked on the video expecting a proposal, not a video of the ring…

 I didn’t find pictures to be tacky, in fact, I stumbled across the post you are referring to AFTER i posted pics of my e-ring on facebook. Whoops. ๐Ÿ™‚ With that said, I didn’t get any negative feedback. Plus, my friends & family were begging to see the ring, so I think my facebook post was approp!
