The general rule of thumb seems to be that the younger a couple are, the sooner theyll change their Facebook status, often within the first month of dating. This is probably because their use of social media is higher. Adults who are looking for a serious, lasting relationship will often wait a few months.
When should you put relationship status on Facebook?
The only people who should be posting a public relationship status are people who are engaged or married. People who post any other relationship status publicly on Facebook look desperate and insecure.
When should I change my Facebook status to single?
If your relationship status has changed to “single” more than two times in the past two weeks, you probably need to lay off the keyboard. Changing your relationship status, albeit a personal choice, is one you should do only when you feel its important for the social media world to know about it.
How do you update your relationship status?
First go to the About section on your timeline and scroll down to the Relationship section. Hit Edit on the upper right corner and change your privacy settings to Only Me. Then change your status to Single or Its Complicated or whatever you situation is, and hit save.
When you change your relationship status does it post?
If you change your relationship status to Single, Divorced or remove it entirely, nothing is shown on your timeline or in News Feed. If you change your relationship status to In a Relationship, anyone who can see your relationship status will be able to see it on your timeline and in News Feed.
