this morning I noticed a few posts in my facebook newsfeed where people were congratulating my friend on the birth of her baby. While my first reaction was "yay the baby is here!" that was followed quickly by surprise that people were congratulating her so publicly when neither her or her partner have made the announcement on Facebook yet. Some of the posts even included the baby's name! So here's my question, is this acceptable facebook behaviour (in which case I'm being a bit of a fuddy duddy) or should people wait for the parents to announce? Thoughts?
