Do You Share Your Relationship Status On Social Media Sites?

When relationships began or ended, the world was only the wiser if you decided to share. Nowadays you just have to tick a box on Facebook and whether you’re single or not is reported across the globe.

Recently Facebook updated this feature to include couple profiles, much to the distaste of many, broadcasting a history of your relationship as well. This isn’t something everyone wants, but it’s become somewhat of a social norm and obligation to announce your status. Some significant others may be offended if you don’t. So, do you update your relationship status on social media sites?

Whether you do or not, tell us why in the comments — and share any interesting stories too!
