If you and your honey are Facebook official, now everyone can see every interaction or anything the two of you have in common on the site — all on one page.  

Here's KTXL.


“As long as you're in a relationship on Facebook there’s actually a page that’s created for you and your significant other. It’s impossible to delete unless you break up on Facebook.”


It’s not quite “‘til death do us part,’ but you’re opted in without being asked. A writer for The Telegraph
describes
the page she now shares with her husband.


“To access your new profile page (that you didn’t ask for), sign in and visit facebook.com/us (the cheesiest web address) and you will be duly presented with the digital archive of your relationship. … the entire collection of photos we have been jointly tagged in ... a list of our mutual friends … an inventory of all the things we jointly ‘like’ (a worrying two) and the events we have jointly been invited to (apparently just three in seven years).”



But Canada.com suggests... maybe Facebook’s creator, Mark Zuckerberg, is getting a little slap-happy since he recently got hitched.


“Could someone kindly fetch me a cap of mouthwash? I think I just puked in my mouth a bit.
…but someone in Palo Alto has to stand up to this love-crazed social media guru and say enough is enough. We get it, Zuckerberg, despite all the odds, you got married to a real-life person and, as a result, all of your subjects have to follow suit and advertise their happiness online(e).”




But one blogger says the change should be celebrated, nothing there’s nothing creepy about the new page and people are just blowing it out of proportion. “What I wish is that people would take a little more time to understand, rather than dashing off their first, and often ill-informed opinion. I mean, if your best headline is that something makes you want to wretch, maybe it’s a sign you need to take some time to digest.”


We know how Facebook users generally react to change. Get ready to see some of your friends threatening to break up with the service over this one.
