    I don’t think it’s rude haha. In my area and circle of friends it’s normal so I didn’t feel bad doing it (: Plus I know that a lot of my friends who live far away wanted to see it. I always get excited seeing other people’s ring pics anyways

    I don’t think it’s rude at all. I like seeing others’ rings…and it eliminates getting 50+ comments asking to see it.

    I posted mine, I don’t regret it…my friends are thousands of miles away and I know they wanted to see it. It is normal to do so in my friend group.

    I voted other because I think to do so would be super tacky!!! Then again I don’t post any gifts that DH gives me on FB, I don’t need to announce to the world that my DH bought me something nice.  About 80% of my friends are married and rocking big beautiful diamonds and I don’t recall a single one of them posting them on FB.

    I don’t think it’s rude or tacky! I posted mine on facebook, mostly because I live in Chicago, and my friends and family are all in Cleveland.  And I was super excited about it! They know Im not the type to brag, but everyone wants to see it! Why not show it to them!

    I posted a ring pic the day I got engaged and didn’t think twice about it. Everyone I know that has gotten engaged has posted at least one. I knew a girl who posted a new one every week. That definitely came across as tacky, but one or two is no big deal.

    I voted no.  I felt a little odd doing it, and I probably wouldn’t have put it up normally but people kept asking me to post it because they wanted to see it, so I put up one picture.  I do think it’s pretty normal, as I’ve seen most people do it, and I do like looking.  Ha…as far as other gifts, I also posted a picture of the bike he got me last Christmas, so there you go!

    I didn’t put pics of my rings on FB cause not everyone I’m friends with on FB were invited to the wedding and I didn’t want to rub all my wedding “stuff” in their faces.

    I don’t think it’s rude, but I do think it’s tacky.  That and pregnancy pee sticks (I’m happy you’re pregnant, but I don’t need to see something you urinated on to prove it) are two of my pet peeves on FB.

    I only ever have a problem with it if there are a gajillion pictures, or if you post a newone every week just because. (On facebook, you can most one everyday on here if you want to). I think its ok if I see it once or twice without looking for it, or if I look for it I can find it. I didn’t post mine because I didn’t want to be seen as materialistic (I just graduated and I think my ring is a good size). I also don’t post very much on facebook though. If you post your lunch everyday, I would probably be surprised if you didn’t post your ring once.

    I don’t think it’s rude, and I definitely love snooping on other people’s rings. However, I didn’t post a picture of my ring because you always hear stories of people getting robbed after they post things on Facebook!

    One of my friends bought a new house and posted pictures of the floor plan and all his things moved in. Lo and behold, when he came back from a weekend away his new place had been robbed.

    I posted a pic the night I was engaged and didn’t think I was showing off or bragging. I was excited about being proposed to and everyone wants to see a ring, so I put it up. Now, if I’m constantly posting pics of my ring, that would be bragging and tacky, in my opinion. Like another poster said, I communicate more via FB than traditional email, so it’s more natural for me to post on FB. And yes, I do post pics of flowers I recieve from Fiance, because I’m happy he did something nice and unexpected and they are pretty, so why not post a pic of something pretty. If my FB friends think that’s tacky, they don’t have to like the pic or comment, or take me off their newsfeed.
