    What do you think is the big deal about Facebook relationship status? Why does it matter to some? Why doesn't it matter to others? What is the difference between not putting it on there because it's "no one's business" and that's the "internet world" and the person actually two-timing? One of my friends have been single for a long time and the last relationship she was in everyone in her life knew about it and she says she didn't feel the need to put it on Facebook. Therefore that is what prompted me to ask such question. Just curious as to what your answers/logic may be.

    If I recall correctly, "relationship status" was the initial appeal of Facebook. It relates to high school and college culture where the people with whom you daily associate are also your dating pool. When you get older and your dating pool is lessened, it's really not an interesting feature.

    For me it also can tend to be the downfall of a relationship believe it or not. I guess depending on age. You know the whole idea that when your single not many flockers but as soon as you get a man/woman err body wants some time? On the other hand does it really matter unless you are so smitten you want the entire world to know?

    It really is "no one's business."

    However, different people post their "relationship status" for different reasons.

    Some want to share with others that they are happily married or in a stable relationship and have albums included with numerous wife/husband/family or s/o pics. --- Sometimes, this is also used as a deterrent for others who try to use FB as a "hook-up" venue.

    For some, it is part of a cathartic release from a previous relationship or marriage by posting that he/she is "single."

    For some, it IS a "hook-up" bait.

    For those who participate in shady, unfaithful behavior in their present relationships/marriages, it's used as a "front/mask."

    For those who behave this way, why not just "un-friend" them and put them on "Block?"
