Facebook has made it possible for you to indicate your pregnancy "status" on your Facebook profile. The social media giant has added the option of allowing users to include "Expected: Child" on their profile. If you're pregnant and want the world - or at least your Facebook friends - to know it, go to: Edit >> Edit Profile >> Friends and Family (on the left) >> Add family member. Then click on the drop down menu and selected "Expected: Child." You have the option to include your baby's name and due date. Some people think this new status option is about more than sharing your life with your friends. Venture Beat says this about the new expecting option in Facebook:
Call us cynics, but this is a great move for Facebook on a financial basis alone. Parents and parents-to-be are perfect targets for brands and advertisers, who can prey on these individuals’ deepest insecurities: that they may not be prepared for parenthood, after all, or that there’s something they can buy to secure a better future for their children. With this new change, parenting is, along with dating and weddings, one of the bigger billion-dollar industries in modern society that will also revolve around publicly accessible Facebook updates.I wonder how many people are simply going to change their Facebook profile to "Expected: Child" and wait for others to notice and comment vs. making a pregnancy announcement on a Facebook status update.
