Just seen someone wrote on someone on my FB's wall -
They have posted about the birth and baby's name's.. Mother hasn't been on fb or written anything about labour!
It's awful isn't it!?

I just wonder why these people don't think / realise why they perhaps shouldn't put anything?
They're obviously oblivious to what they are doing or they wouldn't do it (I think / hope!).

I hope so too... But it's a shame now I know the sex name etc without her telling us..

Do you think the mothers planned it that way - i.e. asked whoever has done it to do so for them?
If not, thats soooo bad!

Well shes been quite active on FB recently.. and it has not time or weight so I would of thought not?

Winds me up! One of my friends posted a 'Good luck with your C-section tomorrow!!' post on another friend's wall. I knew about it because we were due a week apart, but FacebookLand didn't and I felt sorry for my pregnant friend (and she was upset but too sweet to say owt).

Its really annoying!
I am hoping to keep it off fb until baby is here..but I know I would be really upset if anyone did it to me!

This really annoys me. I'd like to think it's because the people have absolutely no brains and they aren't actually doing it out of badness.

In the case I mentioned it's pretty likely it was done to make a point (long story), which meant it irked me more! Private messaging good luck means just as much to the recipient but keeps it discreet. I don't even post birthday messages on someone's wall unless their birthday is logged on Facebook, just in case!! :)

To be honest if you are on a social media site and have published your pregnancy on there then I think it's either sensible to lock your wall so no one posts the news or tell people when you text/call there is to be no mention until the parents post. I locked my wall and everyone I text knew to keep quiet. If people don't have kids especially they won't realise the importance of it being the parents news.

Surely it's just common sense lol...?

Jeez....That's awful :(
11/05/2014 at 18:47
She's now just done a post about Him and a picture...
11/05/2014 at 18:59
I think you should say something!
It's not her news to share I'd be furious!

Oh yes! LLL you've reminded me. My sis had twins. Her husband's brother posted the news on his wall, but tagged them, so we all saw it. I couldn't help myself and posted 'good job they didn't want to make their big announcement themselves!' People in his family liked my comment. Very strange!

I plan to lock my wall or maybe even delete Facebook but my in laws are on Facebook & there are definately people who would put it on Facebook to be seen as the first in the know & neither are they approachable. A friends husband actually checked into the hospital on Facebook the day her c section was booked. Winker

Quite a few ladies I know have posted a disclaimer on their facebook page in the run up to due date literally stating 'do not post anything to my wall - it's our news to announce' etc etc - seems such a shame that people need to be told that and common sense doesn't prevail!
11/05/2014 at 20:15
It's a shame people don't think about things like this. I didn't realise that you could block your wall so no one can post on it, definitely something I will look into.

This happened to me.....my SIL blabbed the news with O and that is how my brother found out (I had text him too but he hadn't received it as had left his phone on silent at work etc) . Some people are just fecking stupid!
