As the Facebook generation grows up, the social networking website is allowing users to announce even more pivotal moments to their network. Facebook unveiled a new “Life Eventâ€ for Timeline on Monday that allows Facebookers to share they are expecting a baby. In addition to sharing the good news, future parents can list the due date, gender, location, who the other parent is and a lengthy story. An image can also be attached to the announcement.
TechCrunch’s Josh Constine says, “Baby announcements appear in the Celebrations home page sidebar beside birthdays on the day the kid is expected to pop out, along with showing up in the news feed.â€
This feature replaces the “Expected: Childâ€ option.
