Facebook Now Reminds You of Your Anniversary

Really, Facebook? I guess it was only a matter of time until the service (which I admittedly use as a crutch for remembering friends' birthdays) delved into anniversary territory. Now when you change your relationship status to "In a Relationship," "Engaged," or "Married," you're prompted to enter your anniversary date. And if you enter it, Facebook not only reminds your friends of your upcoming anniversary, it reminds you as well!

I'm not sure what it is about this feature, but something about it makes me giggle. Admittedly, Facebook can be a relationship game-changer. From a guy hiding behind his Facebook profile to knowing when to change your relationship status, it creates its fair share of challenges. Obviously, adding anniversary reminders to your profile is one aspect of technology that makes dating easier, but I'm thinking if you need a Facebook reminder to remember, it may be a relationship red flag. What do you think? Is including an anniversary date on your profile a little too much information, or is it fair game?

Personally I have no desire for others to know my anniversary. I think that it is something that is personal. I have been with my guy for quite some time now, and maybe that is why?! We have dated for around 8 years so to me it is nice to have that day together that is personal and special to just us.

Actually, I've been hoping that Facebook would add this feature for awhile now! I have a lot of married friends and family and I never remember when their anniversaries are. This will be very helpful!
