" Or, on the other hand-- two secretive friends get engaged, alter their respective statuses, and after that BOOM! Every single individual they understand on Facebook wants an invite to the wedding event.
Both of these circumstances (and numerous in between) ask the concern: simply how do you change your relationship status on Facebook while keeping your news feed followers in the dark?
How Do I Change My Relationship Status On Facebook
I get that this is a very twenty-first century only-for-people-who-are-online-a-lot issue, and maybe a ridiculous 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 tell you, I feel in one's bones that for lots of people it does, and the creepy-crawly, upside-down-stomach sensation that supports those ideas isn't really the best thing ever.
Last year my finest friend ended a relationship, and I noticed that she successfully kept the ending of this relationship from ending up being Facebook's news-- a few "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 obviously a bit of a digital genius, and I recently had her sit down and show me the best ways to make this occur:
- Go to your profile.
- Click "Edit Profile".
- Select "Buddies and Household" from the menu left wing.
- Click the arrow next to "Relationship Status".
- Change this to "Just me".
ow your relationship status will be noticeable ONLY to you-- not even your (possibly) partner can see it. It just vanishes! It's a pretty simple fix (assuming Facebook does not change the way you do it in a week), and painless at that. Win-win.
