Happy Anniversary from Facebook

FacebookAnniversary.jpgThis improvement will likely be much more useful for the men on Facebook than for the women: The social-networking site introduced the option of adding the date of the anniversary of relationships to profiles, and the anniversary field appears directly under the relationship section of the information tab on profiles, engineering intern Jackie Kong announced on the Facebook Blog.

From Kong’s post:

As much as I enjoy celebrating my birthday every year with my friends, I often regard the anniversary of my relationship with my significant other to be even more important.

At Facebook, we’re always looking to make it easier to share and recognize such milestones. That’s why we recently added the ability for you to include the date of your relationship anniversary on your Facebook profile. The new “Anniversary” field appears on profiles under the Relationship section of the Info tab.

Once added, your anniversary date will be reflected on your profile and the profile of your significant other. The display of your anniversary date will follow the same privacy settings as those that you’ve set for your relationship status.

Besides being able to view anniversaries, you’ll also be reminded of your own anniversary from the Events section on your home page so you can better prepare that romantic dinner or celebration you have always envisioned.

Over time, we hope to surface the anniversaries of your friends as well, so you can congratulate them, too.
