Facebook takes friendships to a new level with relationship pages

If you’re in a relationship, you’ll definitely want to head on over to the new Facebook Relationship Pages. Yes, that’s right – if you’re in a relationship with anyone, Facebook has updated Friendship Pages to a new type of page called Facebook Relationship Pages, which showcase everything you have in common with a person.

Personally, I can understand where Facebook is going with the new Facebook Relationship Pages. If you’ve taken the time to tell Facebook that you’re in a relationship, why not have a separate page that lets you reminisce and remind you of why you fell in love with your significant other in the first place or let you look back on the good times and the bad times you’ve had with friends.  While you’re at it, I’m sure Facebook is hoping you send them a Facebook Gift.

While there seems to be a lot of upside to Facebook Relationship Pages, some people such as The Telegraph‘s Emma Barnett had this to say about  Facebook Relationship Pages.

“Please take note Facebook executives,” she wrote. “I enjoy being able to share the information I wish and curate in the way I want. I have no desire for your technology teams to help me organize my photos — nor do I wish to have a shared ‘couples’ Facebook profile with my other half on which you automatically curate our relationship.”

So what details do Facebook Relationship Pages share?

Facebook Relationship Pages showcase a lot of information about your relationship with your significant other as well as your friends.  Below is a list of what areas appear on Facebook Relationship Pages.

What you see on Facebook Relationship Pages

  • A profile photo (the last photo you are both tagged in)
  • If you’re married, an Anniversary Date
  • List of mutual friends
  • Breakdown of friendships with mutual friends
  • EVERY post you have ever written on your your friend or significant others wall
  • Photos that you’re both tagged in
