" Or, on the other side-- two secretive pals get engaged, alter their particular statuses, then BOOM! Every person they know on Facebook desires an invite to the wedding.
Both of these situations (and many in between) ask the concern: just how do you change your relationship status on Facebook while keeping your news feed followers in the dark?
How Do You Change Your Relationship Status On Facebook
I get that this is a very twenty-first century only-for-people-who-are-online-a-lot issue, and perhaps a silly one at that. Why, when you're thinking of a change to your long-term relationship, would your mind roam to your Facebook relationship status? I can't inform you, I feel in one's bones that for lots of people it does, and the creepy-crawly, upside-down-stomach feeling that goes along with those thoughts isn't the very best thing ever.
In 2016 my buddy ended a relationship, and I observed that she effectively kept the ending of this relationship from becoming Facebook's news-- a couple of "pals" didn't even understand her previous relationship had been over for almost a year when she started dating her now-boyfriend.
So she's clearly a little a digital genius, and I recently had her take a seat and show me how to make this take place:
- Go to your profile.
- Click "Edit Profile".
- Select "Friends and Family" from the menu left wing.
- Click the arrow beside "Relationship Status".
- Modification this to "Just me".
ow your relationship status will show up ONLY to you-- not even your (possibly) partner can see it. It merely disappears! It's a pretty easy repair (presuming Facebook doesn't alter the method you do it in a week), and pain-free at that. Win-win.
