Since social media is a large part of what I do (and enjoy) on a day-to-day basis. I see a lot of interesting things in my personal and ‘professional’ Facebook Newsfeeds. And, since streaming on Facebook went ‘live,’ I see things tick across my screen in real time…let me tell you, it can get interesting and awkward.

Why are ‘Relationship Status’ changes so intriguing on Facebook? Does changing your relationship status on Facebook somehow validate the relationship? Is saying you’re newly “Single” or “In a Relationship” effectively broadcasting to everyone you know too much information?

Relationship Status has also been in the headlines recently due to Facebook’s recently expanded status “options.” As of February 17th, there are more options…domestic partnerships and civil unions were added as options in the drop-down

menu for users in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia and France.

There are thousands of Apps on Facebook and I’d be remiss if I didn’t touch on those that link with Relationship Status.

The “Breakup Notifier” (which didn’t get that much positive press). This App is supposed to notify you when specific people (ahem, those you stalk) change their Relationship Status. And so many more!
