Keep your Twitchy Fingers to Yourself
I got her weight wrong by two ounces; hey I just had a baby! I had called my dad, my mom was in the room, and my siblings were all over the planet. I used social media to make it easy. And since 2011, many other families have decided to do the same.
BUT, what happens when the family isn't the one sharing the news? What if you don't want to tell the millions of people on Facebook, or Twitter, or even through Email that your baby has arrived? What if the birth announcement on social media is not from the parents, but from someone who isn't even that close with the family?
