Birth Announcements ...
Facebook has changed how birth announcements are done today.
100 years ago - A fancy card with a stork (it was always the stork who brought babies)
50 years ago - A telegram from the Post Office
10 years ago - An email to all your friends
Today - A blow-by-blow account of Facebook updates
Doesn't anybody send cards anymore?

I used MyFakeWall to create the Facebook pages for Jack & Jill. I wanted to add more updates from Jill while she was giving birth but that seemed too silly. But I liked the idea of Jack & Jill using Facebook to talk to each other during labour and then sharing that as part of the birth announcement. It's no longer "oh we had a baby" but now has become "and this is how it happened". My how times have changed.
