I don’t think age has anything to do with it. As someone who is turning 30 here shortly you and I have very different view points on the same topic and we are within the same age group. That being said most of my friends seem to share my viewpoint considering what I see and experience on FB daily and I am the youngest for the most part.
Perhaps it is the way the information is presented that is more appalling to you? Like if I added a photo and said something about it like “here is my giant ring…” versus a photo within an album? One is obviously drawing attention to the item itself whereas the other it is just there. Does that make a difference?
Just to be clear I am more annoyed when people discuss their child’s first poop in a toilet, their kid’s cheerleading competition results or posted naked bath photos by the hundreds. I don’t see how one is oversharing and the other is not.
I wouldn’t call it rude, but I think it’s off putting when the minute an egagement happens, the couple updates facebook with pictures of the ring. I’d rather see pictures of a happy couple. I think it’s a little less in your face when the ring pictures are one of many of an engagement album, for example. Personally I didn’t because I just didn’t care to hear everyone’s opinion or judgment (which of course people do). I also don’t want to advertise what I have in case it makes someone else feel upset for whatever reason or develop certain feelings about me and what I have (whether it be that I have too much or that I have too little in their eyes).
I posted my ring on FB because for a lot of family that live far, that’s how they would see it! I personally love looking at rings when people post them and don’t think it’s offensive or rude lol
I never posted any photos although some of my friends did ask.
One of our other friends posted about a million photos of her “engagement” ie just photos of her ring and NO photos of the couple at all, and its still being talked about
I don’t understand why it’s rude. I personally like to stalk the photos of a newly engaged friend on facebook to find a nice ring photo :).
I agree that I don’t think it’s rude, but I think it’s kind of tacky. I have a very expensive ring and I don’t really want “OMG that’s so big!!” comments on my facebook. If you post an album of engagement pictures and there’s one of your ring, that’s fine. I just don’t like announcing your engagement by posting a picture of your ring, it’s just a bit distasteful in my opinion. Obviously others think otherwise!
I don’t think it’a rude at all. I posted a few of mine because people wanted to see it. Every time someone on my friends list gets engaged they post pictures.
I posted a picture of my ring because I had a bunch of friends that I primarily contact through facebook who wanted to see my ring. I don’t think it’s rude as long as you don’t post a bazillion pictures, it’s all good.
Personally I wouldn’t, because to some people it’s considered impolite to call too much attention to material posessions, especially if it’s unsolicited.
Nothing wrong with emailing the photo to the select few you are close to that want to see it.
You are free to do whatever you want if you see no issue with it. You were curious to know why people felt that way, but it doesn’t mean you have to share the opinion. Do what you’re most comfortable doing.
I wish I could show you my friend’s page who did this. SHe honestly just filled a facebook album full of photos of her ring in different places. Some on her hand, some not. It was a bit crazy
I don’t think it’s rude, but I didn’t post mine on Facebook for a few reasons. While I enjoyed showing my ring on wb, many friends do not care how my ring looks. Second, I didn’t want the ring envy to occur from others (meaning actual ring envy or just life envy). unfortunately, not everyone will be happy for me so I chose to show my ring to friends and family in person. I had a cousin who recently canceled her wedding and friends who stopped talking to me when their relationships ended, so I left things to the imagination.
I dont know if its rude.. I voted no, I just dont post too much personal stuff.
