Future mothers and fathers who wish to get the news out in a hurry – there’s now a new Facebook feature that will help you do that. Now, along with a big status update or sonogram picture, you can also add the fact that you’re “expecting a baby” to your Timeline.
“Life Events are easy and expressive ways to mark significant moments in your life such as getting married, buying a house or traveling to new places. If you choose to, you can now share that you are expecting a baby with your friends on Facebook,” says Facebook.
All you have to do it click the little plus icon on your Timeline and add a “life event.” Inside the Family & Relationships category, you’ll find that “expecting a baby” now joins “engagement,” “marriage,” “new child,” “new pet,” “loss of a loved one,” and many more as possible event options.
Not only will the new event appear on your Timeline, but it will also appear as a reminder to your friends on the top right corner of their home page (where the birthdays are displayed). Last month, Facebook added engagements and wedding reminders to that section.
And it looks like Facebook is continuing to spruce up the options for Timeline as they begin the final push of their new profile format to all users.
