I love seeing pics of engagement rings with anouncements, so I posted mine when we announced our engagement on FB! It was a collage of 3 pics: a pic of us smiling widely, a shot of my rings from afar, and a close up of my diamond. The pic of us was the focus of the collage. That was the only time I posted a pic of it on FB – I didn’t even post my engagement pics. I only post my many rings pics and engagement pics on these forums

Most of the time I’ve seen it it’s looked super tacky. My SIL did it in such a distateful way and it made me not want to do it. I didn’t post a ring picture or a picture of the ring because I don’t think it’s the most important part. That said, a lot of FI’s family was upset that I didn’t because they wanted to see and don’t see me as often. You can’t really win!

I didn’t even post one when I got engaged. People have seen it in subsequent photos when I took photos of my manicure. I don’t mind people posting when they get engaged, but constantly afterward is braggy to me.

I think people are just showing off an incredibly happy time in their lives, nothing wrong with that. I’m more annoyed by people who post one or more pictures of their infants or children every single day. But, I’ve learned to just keep scrolling by or block them from showing in my news feed, because it might be the only way people in their lives who want to see the little ones every day are able to. So, I’ll just be happy for my friends and family that are happy enough that they want to share it. 🙂 No use seeking out reasons to try and judge people or bring them down from their happy place.

FantasticFawn: I have done it on IG but NOT Facebook. My Future Father-In-Law really doesn’t want me “flashing” it because he’s afraid someone will try to brake in and steal it especially until it was insured. I did not post anything or change status until a week or two later until i was able to notify all family and close friends first. I hate when people immediately post it without telling those close to you first it makes them feel like you don’t care about them because they had to hear it from social media or through someone else.
