I’ve been on the receiving end of the whole Facebook relationship status drama.
For me, it was annoying as hell and it turned into a battle of wills between me and my girlfriend at that time.
There was a time, perhaps not so long ago, when two tech-savvy humans would meet, mash their parts together, fall in love, and make a display of their blissful commitment to the world: making it "Facebook official." People fretted over that step, agonized and analyzed over when was the right time to ask their partner about changing their status to "in a relationship." In many ways, it was the digital version of the traditionally analog process of "defining the relationship" and thus the source of late-night TV show jokes and wine-soaked goss-seshes among besties.
It was the new symbol of how our anxieties over our digital lives impact our real ones.
You want to remember this cool movie premiere and the people who were there with you.
Ease up a bit on the fella – Facebook status can be a touchy thing.But after that, everything else is a little less clear.Why does everyone feel compelled to declare their relationship status for all their high school friends and college acquaintances to see?A few notes about the data: As many as 80,000 people responded to the 16 questions (People tend to drop out of these polls: 80,000 answered the first question, but only 40,000 answered the last).The last question was about age demographic, which as you would imagine would significantly impact relationship status.
