Facebook Relationship Status Options

With One Little Feature, Facebook Becomes More Like Match.com

Everything you post on Facebook is fair game for judgment — so it's totally understandable why people would rather keep their relationship status under wraps. But if you're dying to know what's up with someone's love life nowadays, you can now ask 'em straight up: are you single or not?

First, hit the "Ask" button and send a quick message.

Your friend will receive a notification.


Select your response. Share your info with just that person, just friends, or the public.


Facebook has always been a prime source for e-stalking. The social network outdid itself just a month ago with Nearby Friends, a real-time friend location tracker. But is relationship requesting taking it too far? Would you ask a friend to share their relationship status? Is it too nosy? Or is it a fun, flirty way to ask if an old high school friend (who's now superhot) is single?
