Social media has totally transformed the ritual of getting engaged, but is that for better or for worse? Cynics say there's nothing romantic or classy about immediately posting ring selfies, and scoff at couples who already have their wedding hashtag all set to go. But others say that haters need to calm down. We live in the age of social media. Plenty of couples post engagements in ways that won't make you gag. What do you think? 💍

So you said yes to your best friend who finally put a ring on it and you “can’t wait to be Mrs. (Your First Name) (His Last Name)” and you're the #LuckiestGirlInTheWorld? What's next, are you going to wear a white dress and play Pachelbel's Canon as you walk down the aisle? YOUR SHIT IS BASIC AND THIS WILL PROBABLY END IN DIVORCE. 

Brides magazine acknowledges some couples overdo it, but offers pointers on how to announce your engagement on social media with some class. (Pro tip: DON'T BRAG ABOUT THE SIZE OF THE ROCK.)

For the specifics of your ring: you may feel comfortable sharing the carat weight with your BFF if she asks, but that info doesn’t belong on social media—and could make your partner or your friends uncomfortable.
