Facebook Tip: How to change your relationship status in a subtle manner
So you found the love of your life (or so it seems) and you’re now ready to announce that to the rest of the world… Announcing new relationships is now a very normal thing. In fact, if you chose not to announce you should get ready for questions to come your way. But unfortunately with many relationships come break ups and this is not necessarily something you want to announce as publicly as when the relationship started. On the flipside, some still prematurely announce the relationship on Facebook before the other is ready to. This will cause Facebook to announce you are in a relationship, with the person who you thought was in it with you still has the words “single” on their profile.
If you follow the easy steps below you can change your relationship status without so much sticky beaking.
