" Or, on the other hand-- two deceptive buddies get engaged, alter their respective statuses, then BOOM! Every single person they understand on Facebook wants a welcome to the wedding event.
Both of these situations (and many in between) plead the concern: just how do you change your relationship status on Facebook while keeping your news feed fans in the dark?
Changing Relationship Status On Facebook
I get that this is a very twenty-first century only-for-people-who-are-online-a-lot problem, and perhaps a silly one at that. Why, when you're considering a change to your long-term relationship, would your mind roam to your Facebook relationship status? I can't tell you, I simply understand that for lots of people it does, and the creepy-crawly, upside-down-stomach sensation that goes along with those thoughts isn't the very best thing ever.
In 2016 my friend ended a relationship, and I noticed that she effectively kept the ending of this relationship from ending up being Facebook's news-- a few "good friends" didn't even recognize her previous relationship had been over for almost a year when she began dating her now-boyfriend.
So she's certainly a little a digital genius, and I just 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 on the left.
- Click the arrow next to "Relationship Status".
- Change this to "Just me".
ow your relationship status will be visible ONLY to you-- not even your (possibly) partner can see it. It just vanishes! It's a pretty simple fix (assuming Facebook does not alter the way you do it in a week), and pain-free at that. Win-win.
Thus the article Changing Relationship Status On Facebook from us, hopefully useful thank you.
