A New Facebook Feature for Engagement Announcements

It goes without saying, we love Facebook's new feature that showcases your friends' wedding and engagement announcements. Now, when one of your Facebook friends changes his or her status to engaged or married, it will appear in the upper right hand corner of your news feed with birthday and event reminders (see below), making it easy to congratulate your friends on their announcement without having to navigate to their timeline. You also don't have to worry about big news getting buried in your news feed, causing you to miss out on Facebook friends' major moments.

The Weddings and Celebrations feature comes at a very appropriate time in a certain Facebook CEO's life. (Mark Zuckerberg tied the knot with longtime love Priscilla Chan—who wore a stunning Claire Pettibone wedding dress—just this past May!) The tech king is clearly tuned in to the world of engagements and weddings, and we couldn't be happier. Hurry up and check out this cool new feature and be sure to give our best to your newly-engaged besties. (Maybe they've uploaded a pic of a certain sparkler—or the dress!) All we ask is that you share it with us.
