Are you in a relationship on Facebook? Introducing the ‘couples page’

Look at all those mutual friends....

Do you and your significant other share the sacred bond of a Facebook relationship? Have you declared your love not just to each other, but more importantly, the world — by making it “Facebook official”?

The social media giant has rolled out a brand new feature that now puts your Facebook relationship on full display in the form of a “couples page.” It’s essentially the same feature as the “see friendship” option that lets you look at shared photos, wall posts, comments and other Facebook history between you and a friend. The “couples page” just chronicles all the same things for you and your love bug specifically.

Except it comes with its own nifty little link: Facebook.com/us

Relax, this page is for the couple’s eyes only — only you and your Facebook significant other can see your own “couples page.”

The new feature, which has only been active for a few days, prompted shock and bewilderment among those clicking on the link for the first time and seeing the automatically-generated page, chronicling every interaction between the couple on Facebook.

Creepy at first for many, but the potential is there to spend hours strolling down the digital memory lane, browsing all your birthday wishes to each other, and those funny photos from Halloween senior year. And look — remember how many people “liked” your status when you announced your engagement?

If the new feature is just too invasive to bear, unfortunately there isn’t much you can do about it. The pages cannot be deleted, but you can and should adjust your privacy settings to control who sees your posts and photos on your individual walls. If certain stories are hidden from your own timeline, they will not appear on your couples page.
