Announcing Pregnancy via Facebook Status Update?

Do you think it is tacky to announce to all our family and friends that we are expecting another baby via facebook status update? Everyone we know is on facebook, and it would just be an easy way to tell everyone; something along the lines of "Mikey is going to be a big brother!". But of course we would tell our parents and the people we are really close to personally, before the status update.

  • Not really. I announced it to most of my friends that way. I of course told my parents and husband immediately, and not on FB, but I think it's a funny way to announce it to others. It's also a heck of a lot easier than calling each and every person.

  • I personally think it is weird, especially if its an announcement on your status. I told everyone either on the phone or in person, but that's just me.

    If you like putting it online instead do what you have to do

  • As long as you tell the really important people on the phone or in person first, I think it's fine. When I think of my friends list... I mean, parents, siblings, in laws (just parents and siblings there too) and maybe one or two close cousins.. One or two close friends... Other than that, i'm all about the status update!
