    I saw this over on the front page of hardocp - showing a couple getting married and the guy is updating his facebook page.

    amusing? sure?

    sad? definitely.

    I now pronounce you husband and wife, you may update your relationship status. :D

    The video description says "This was just done to be funny - we really don't Facebook THAT often" I'm not sure I believe him. Either way, it's a really dumb thing to do on your wedding.

    I think the bride did something too?
    Anyway, I think it is partially cute if they both wanted it and it was not imposed on the other. I wouldn't do it, I find it sick and sad.

    It could be worse, it could be an update on Twitter. (The original I saw said only about facebook)
    Then again, if my other half used Twitter, I wouldn't get married to her.

    Quite frankly i can't believe just how many people experience the compulsive urge to update the world when they fart. Fair enough it's a useful tool for connecting with people and occasionally professional networking such as LinkedIn, But it's gone too damned far.

    Useful in moderation, destructive when abused. Say, doesn't this apply to almost everything?

    Yeah.... but not coffee. ;)


    Anyways, updating facebook during your wedding????? way out of line, obviously the wedding isn't being taken seriously, the marriage won't be taken seriously either.....

    I agree, it's an insult to the vows that you will keep until the end of your life. Or in today's case, until the end of your marriage. "Until divorce do you part"

    I am anti-social networking site.

    If you need to get me, you can call me. If I'm not home, leave a message. This has worked for many, many years and will continue to work.

    Don't even get me started about who-cares-what-you-had-on-your-sammich-Twitter.

    Exactly.

    My wife and I missed out on a barbecue this summer because our friends only sent out the invite through Facebook. What the hell was going through their brains? They work at a phone store. Pick one up and dial next time!

    that' taking it a bit too far IMHO, then again maybe they deserve each other if they came up with this ridiculous idea in the first place.

    don't care.. as long as they don't get upset or try to force me to go along with it... for in fact... i don't care if anyone does anything at all provided it's not clearly breaking the free will of others..
