Announcing your Pregnant on Facebook
Facebook now makes it easier for you to share the news, they have included a new status, which is found under the “Friends and Family” section of the “Edit Profile” page.
It is somewhat strange for Facebook to introduce the new option, considering the site previously shut down a profile page of a 4 month old fetus, set up by an excited couple. Facebook’s policy does not allow children under 13 to have accounts. (Why would you give your unborn child a Facebook page is another question.)
We all know that having a baby is big news, and it is understandable that people would inevitably like to share it with others. But is it acceptable etiquette, or even wise, to announce your pregnancy over Facebook?
What happens if something goes awry? Before they share their news. If something were to go wrong (touch wood), no status change could address the sense of loss, pain and awkwardness that often follows.
At least this is a new modern way of sharing to your friends and family.
