Facebook Relationship Status Change

If you're on Facebook at all, you've seen it occur: two friends end their marriage or long-term relationship, Facebook notifies you that [GOOD FRIEND] and [GOOD FRIEND] are "no longer in a relationship, Facebook Relationship Status Change.

" Or, on the other hand-- two secretive friends get engaged, change their particular statuses, and then BOOM! Every individual they know on Facebook wants an invite to the wedding.

Facebook Relationship Status Change

Both of these circumstances (and lots of between) beg the question: just how do you change your relationship status on Facebook while keeping your news feed followers in the dark?

I get that this is a really twenty-first century only-for-people-who-are-online-a-lot problem, and perhaps a ridiculous one at that. Why, when you're thinking of a change to your long-term relationship, would your mind wander to your Facebook relationship status? I can't tell you, I feel in one's bones that for numerous individuals it does, and the creepy-crawly, upside-down-stomach feeling that accompanies those thoughts isn't the very best thing ever.

In 2016 my best pal ended a relationship, and I saw that she successfully kept the ending of this relationship from ending up being Facebook's news-- a couple of "pals" didn't even recognize her previous relationship had actually been over for nearly a year when she began dating her now-boyfriend.

So she's clearly a little a digital genius, and I just recently had her sit down and show me how to make this occur:

  • Go to your profile.

  • Click "Edit Profile".

  • Select "Buddies and Family" from the menu left wing.

  • Click the arrow beside "Relationship Status".

  • Change this to "Only me".

ow your relationship status will show up ONLY to you-- not even your (maybe) partner can see it. It just disappears! It's a pretty simple fix (presuming Facebook does not change the method you do it in a week), and pain-free at that. Win-win. Thus the article Facebook Relationship Status Change from us, hopefully useful thank you.
