Only 17% Of Weddings Use Facebook: INFOGRAPHIC

People display their marital status in their Facebook profiles but the site doesn’t factor into actual weddings as much as you might think. Only 17 percent of nuptials tap the leading social network either to invite people or share event photos after the fact.

Of course, these days many couples have more people on their Facebook friend lists than they can afford to invite to weddings, and don’t want to make the uninvited feel excluded. Regardless, some think more pairs should take advantage of social media, like online jeweler Sparkle ‘N Dazzle Company, which compiled an infographic on the topic.

Brides-to-be could post their wedding dates on Facebook and also create interactive seating charts that invited guests could peruse, suggests Sparkle ‘N Dazzle. Let us know in the comments section what you think of those suggestions and the other goodies appearing in the infographic below.
