Wedding Engagement: Is It a Bad Idea to Post Engagement Ring on Facebook?

Q: Is it a bad idea to post pictures of my engagement ring on Facebook?

A: It may look like you're showing off, but let's face it: Your friends will want to see pictures of your ring! For most, the easiest way to share something like that is on Facebook or Twitter. If you feel weird about it, don't do it -- or at least change your privacy settings so only your inner circle can check it out, and not all 400 of your friends, ex-boyfriends and hookups.
