People ruin beautiful things.
You might’ve heard this quote quite often, advising you to keep your special things to yourself for as long as possible. Because if too many people came to know about it, it would somehow be ruined. And we’re not saying these words hold no meaning. Indeed, those who maintain a private life in this age of social media have often been found to lead happier lives.
However, just because it works well for them doesn’t necessarily mean it has to work for you. Sure, social media is not a place to brag blatantly. But when something meaningful happens in your life, it’s a great choice to share the news with your loved ones on social media!
Today, we’re here to explore together how you can post your relationship status on your newsfeed on Facebook. Of course, we’re hoping to share with you more information than you were looking for, so let’s get started!
How to Post Relationship Status on Facebook News Feed?
If you use LinkedIn frequently, you’d have noticed how every time you change your work or education history, the platform asks you to share with your network as an update. There might have been a time when Facebook worked the same, but that’s not the case anymore.
Nowadays, the process of updating your relationship status and posting about it are two different and unrelated processes on the platform. Therefore, below, we’ll be talking about both these processes elaborately. Pay attention!
Changing your relationship status on Facebook: A step-by-step guide
First things first! Let’s explore how changing your relationship status on Facebook works:
Step 1: Launch the Facebook mobile app on your smartphone. Once it opens, enter your login credential to log into your account (if you aren’t logged in already).
Step 2: Once you’re inside your account, you’ll be taken to your Home tab first.
This tab displays the most recent updates of your friends and family, with a separate Stories, Reels, and Rooms section on top.
If you look toward the top-right corner of your screen, you’ll notice a hamburger icon (three horizontal lines) right below the message bubble icon – a shortcut to Messenger.
Give this icon a tap.
Step 3: Upon doing so, you’ll be taken to a Menu tab. Here, you’ll have a Facebook username on top, placed alongside a thumbnail of your profile picture.
To head to your Profile – where we have the next order of business – you’ll need to click on your username here.
Step 4: Have you landed on your Profile tab yet? Great. Now, you’ll see your cover picture on top here, followed by your profile picture and then your name.
Below these, two buttons are displayed: a blue one that says +Add to Story and a grey one with a pencil icon and Edit profile written next to it.
Give the second – grey – button a tap.
Step 5: You’ll find yourself on the Edit profile tab next. Here, you’ll be given the choice of changing your current profile picture, cover photo, and bio.
