You just got engaged but you are unsure of how to declare your joy on social media.

Also, you may be worried if it would sound too awkward or too under-excited.

Here’s how you post a Facebook status that sounds flattering, happy and strikes the right balance!

Time needed: 4 minutes

How to post engagement status on Facebook – For the avid Facebook user

  1. Open Facebook

    Open Facebook and on the top bar, click your name displayed on the top right.

  2. Go to About

    Go to About, and find the Family and Relationships button(usually found  in the left column)

  3. Add your relationship status

    Here, click Add your relationship status. You can also hover over your relationship and then click Edit.

  4. Add the name of the person you are in a relationship with if you want to

    Now Choose your relationship status from the preset menu. Depending on your status and if you are interested, you can add the name of the person you’re in a relationship with. You can also set your anniversary here.

  5. Set privacy settings as per your comfort

    If you are selective about who should see it, Facebook lets you use the audience selector to choose who all you want to share this status with. Isn’t that convenient!

  6. Save and hola! you are done!

    At last, hit Save Changes and you are done.

Note that if you want to add your significant other in your relationship status you have to be already friends with him/her.

Also, inform him/her about the status option earlier so that he/she can approve the same.

Only then is the life event displayed for your audience!


Updating statuses on social media is akin to a formal declaration of your engagement. So don’t be shy to put words to your love.

The thing to remember is the kind of audience on each platform because you don’t want to sound super cheesy on Whatsapp, where your traditional aunts and uncles are! You can choose our fine quotes to make your engagement day and your love for each other known.

Also, arm yourself for the deluge of phone calls and messages of congratulations and queries about your fiance almost immediately.

But no worries, who doesn’t love a little attention once in a while!
