" Or, on the other hand-- 2 deceptive good friends get engaged, change their particular statuses, then BOOM! Each person they understand on Facebook desires a welcome to the wedding event.
Both of these situations (and lots of between) ask the concern: just how do you alter your relationship status on Facebook while keeping your news feed followers in the dark?
Facebook Relationship Status Change
I get that this is an extremely twenty-first century only-for-people-who-are-online-a-lot issue, and possibly a ridiculous one at that. Why, when you're considering a change to your long-lasting relationship, would your mind roam to your Facebook relationship status? I cannot inform you, I feel in one's bones that for many people it does, and the creepy-crawly, upside-down-stomach sensation that accompanies those thoughts isn't the very best thing ever.
In 2016 my friend ended a relationship, and I observed that she effectively kept the ending of this relationship from becoming Facebook's news-- a few "pals" didn't even understand her previous relationship had been over for nearly a year when she began dating her now-boyfriend.
So she's certainly a bit of a digital genius, and I just recently had her take a seat and reveal me ways to make this take place:
- Go to your profile.
- Click "Edit Profile".
- Select "Friends and Household" from the menu on the left.
- Click the arrow beside "Relationship Status".
- Change this to "Just me".
ow your relationship status will show up ONLY to you-- not even your (possibly) partner can see it. It just disappears! It's a quite easy fix (presuming Facebook doesn't change the method you do it in a week), and painless at that. Win-win.
