The Awesome Awkwardness of Social Networks

my facebook feed showing marriage messges for two different people that are incorrectly timed

Moment of Facebook zen when two different couples I know have their relationships awkwardly upgraded because of the way the system works. At the top my brother Chris, who’s been married since the summer, is listed as having just married his wife Mary because she just joined Facebook and couldn’t be listed as his partner before, with facebook making a huge deal about it. Below is the aftermath of a similar message, where my friend Mike thanks everyone for their congradulations but reminds them that the news of his engagement is two years old. What a delightful bug that lets you relive the celebratory moments of your life again upon joining. (Now all I need to do is make a version which, upon joining, forces you to list all the old relationships you’ve had and reminds everyone how you broke up with those people.. Oh wait, that’s just what friending your Ex’s is like)
