Expecting a Baby? Don’t Forget to Announce it on Facebook

... And if you don't like seeing pictures of babies, Google Chrome has an app for you


Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) has expanded its life event options to include “Expecting a Baby.”

With this feature, users can post their news and also look on the “Celebrations” section of their Facebook homepage to see if friends are expecting a new bundle anytime soon.

Expecting parents also can add details to their announcement such as photos, due date, gender, background story — eh, TMI anyone? — names of grandparents and location to name a few.

Not everyone, however, is enamored by babies, news of babies and pictures of babies. If you fall into this category, there’s an app for you.

Unbaby.me, is a Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Chrome app for your Facebook page that “deletes babies from your newsfeed permanently – by replacing them with awesome stuff.” The service is gaining popular among those annoyed by pictures of babies and already has more than 70,000 Facebook “likes.”
