Facebook Releases “Weddings and Celebrations” Feature, Maturing With Executives
Facebook released a new Weddings and Celebrations feature that will display special events, starting with engagements and weddings, along with friends birthdays on the social network.
The feature, which begins rolling out today, is automated based off the changing of a relationship status to engaged or married. Appearing above birthdays on the homepage, users can click on the update and congratulate either member of the couple, as well as add one of the members as a friend, without leaving the page.
Yesterday, Facebook redesigned its events page, adding list and calendar views. However, a Facebook spokesperson tells us that Weddings and Celebrations will not be added to the list or calendar views. It will only appear on the homepage.
