    I don't see a problem with it. A lot of my friends posted pictures of flowers and different things they got. I don't think they were bragging, I think they were sharing something that they were excited and happy about. If anything it was bragging about their kids, look what they gave me that was so sweet.

    I think really, there is no rule. Sometimes it's tacky for people to post pictures of presents. It's the way they do it, it's the way they are otherwise, it's who their friends are. I have a friend who was born in a trailer park and now is married to a man whose family owns a restaurant chain. She posts pictures all the time of the stuff she has, from her giant engagement ring to her kid's first birthday party at the Hilton, and everything else but she is so sweet about it, and she recognizes how lucky she is and that other people don't have that and it's not like she worked harder to get what she has than anyone else. So we are as excited for her as she is to get stuff.

    Ooohhhh, you are way nicer than me. Posting a photo of ones engagement ring on FB is a huge no no on my tacky o - meter. A girl that I went to high school with who got divorced and is getting remarried recently did this. She is also SUPER religious and CONSTANTLY posting bible verses and the like. I don't know, maybe its just me, but it seemed super materialistic/shallow vain for someone who is so preachy like, you know? I will tell you it elicited a GIGANTIC eye roll from me GIGANTIC.

    I know many people who post their engagement ring on FB as a way of announcing their engagement on FB. I would not think that was unusual at all.

    I feel like i should be more turned off by this...but I'm not for some reason. I think its because in person so often people immediately say "Lets see it!!!" and sit there and ooh and ah over it. We've built up this culture around the whole engagement ring thing. I think as a whole it turns me off....but i can't get annoyed with this one particular part of it (sharing it on FB) any more than i can get annoyed at the whole of it.

    If that makes any sense.

    I have never understood engagement rings. Different debate.

    Ya I don't get why that would be unusual either. What is the difference between posting a picture on FB and showing off your ring in person? That seems pretty standard when someone gets engaged.

    I was 29 when I got engaged. I never, ever stuck my ring in someone's face. If someone asked to see my ring I would show them, but, I wasn't one of those OMG *SQUEEEEEE* CHECK OUT MY AWESOME RING LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME LOOK AT MEEEEEE shoving my ring in their face sort of immature child about my engagement ring. It was a ring, it didn't define me or change me or anything. If someone asked I would show them, but frankly I found the whole thing slightly uncomfortable. Getting engaged a little later meant that my DH could afford a pretty nice ring, and I didn't like feeling judged or whatever for my ring, either. To me putting a picture of ones ring on FB is as obnoxious as being that silly girl shoving her ring in peoples face. It just isn't the way I was raised.

    Gloria you nailed it when you say its "showing off". I think its showing off too and showing off is uncomfortable to me in such a broad format. I have former work colleagues and whatnot on FB ~ the thought of "showing off" jewelry in front of them is very odd, to me.

    That engagement ring squee is very common. I have never connected with it, and we skipped the engagement ring thing completely because of both of our feelings about it, but most of the people I work with do that big show-off moment and everybody squeals and whatnot. It's pretty traditional. (I just don't relate.)
