From birthdays to weddings, major life events are no strangers to our Facebook newsfeeds.
While there are no rules on how to make these announcements, many of us find ourselves compelled to share news within our social networks. Especially an engagement! After taking your sweet time to let the moment soak in and bask in your love, the next step is sharing your happy news. Make sure to let all of your loved ones know the old fashioned way first. Then, once you and your future spouse have discussed when you want to let the digital world in on your news, the last thing left to do is decide how.
