Facebook Etiquette: When you’re done with the ex, and moved on to the next…….

You enter into a relationship so quite naturally on Facebook, you update your status to “in a relationship” and you get that pretty little pink heart next to your relationship status.  You post pictures of each other on your pages. You share pictures of the things you are doing and the places you go together. You basically share your life together on Facebook. So what happens when the relationship comes to an end? If it’s a bad breakup, then most likely you are going to instantly (or within a few days) update your status to “it’s complicated” or “single”.  So what happens to all those pictures that you and your ex took that are posted all over your page? The pictures you were tagged in and all the memories of happier times.  Well, well, well……This argument came up between a friend and I.  We totally disagree and I just want to see what thoughts you may have on the issue. So, with that being said, is it alright to leave the pictures on your page just for the memories. The main question is.... What happens when you get into another relationship??  Do you think your new woman/man is going to want to see pictures of you and your ex in your “My Photos” album?

Or is it cool to leave them there and just explain that “Hey! Those pictures are old!”  Would you feel comfortable dating a guy or woman who has his ex all over his Facebook page…… What are your thoughts??? Converse with me!! It’s the first blog post on my latest blog…. Conversation with Collie!!!
