Changing Relationship Status On Facebook

Changing Relationship Status On Facebook - If you're on Facebook at all, you've seen it happen: two good friends end their marriage or long-lasting relationship, Facebook informs you that [PAL] and [PAL] are "no longer in a relationship.

" Or, on the flip side-- 2 secretive pals get engaged, change their respective statuses, and after that BOOM! Every single person they understand on Facebook wants an invite to the wedding event.

Both of these scenarios (and numerous in between) beg the concern: just how do you alter your relationship status on Facebook while keeping your news feed followers in the dark?

Changing Relationship Status On Facebook


I get that this is a really twenty-first century only-for-people-who-are-online-a-lot issue, and perhaps a ridiculous one at that. Why, when you're thinking about a change to your long-lasting relationship, would your mind roam to your Facebook relationship status? I can't tell you, I just understand that for lots of people it does, and the creepy-crawly, upside-down-stomach sensation that supports those ideas isn't really the very best thing ever.

Last year my best pal ended a relationship, and I noticed that she successfully kept the ending of this relationship from becoming Facebook's news-- a couple of "friends" didn't even understand her previous relationship had been over for almost a year when she started dating her now-boyfriend.

So she's certainly a little bit of a digital genius, and I recently had her sit down and show me how to make this take place:

- Go to your profile.
- Click "Edit Profile".
- Select "Pals and Family" from the menu left wing.
- Click the arrow next to "Relationship Status".
- Modification this to "Just me".

ow your relationship status will be noticeable ONLY to you-- not even your (perhaps) partner can see it. It just vanishes! It's a quite simple fix (presuming Facebook doesn't change the way you do it in a week), and painless at that. Win-win.

Thus the article Changing Relationship Status On Facebook from us, hopefully useful thank you.
