Facebook Marriage Proposal: Social Media Helps Techie Boyfriend Pop The Question (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

If Facebook wanted to marry Twitter, this is how it would probably propose.

In a proposal that combines the two social media platforms, Facebook employee Jon Park asked his girlfriend, Twitter employee Genevieve Wong, to marry him by sending her (via Twitter) a video that depicts a Facebook Graph Search of photos of the two of them. At the end of the video, Park holds up signs asking Wong to turn around -- then, he pops the question (in real life). Watch the entire proposal in the video above.

Park explained in the video's description on YouTube that he asked three of Wong's coworkers to tweet her the video while he and Wong were wandering around Dolores Park in San Francisco last month. After she watched the video on her smartphone and said "yes," he took her to a surprise party to celebrate.

Wong wrote on her blog that she "started quasi hyperventilating" while watching the video, and that "tears, hugs, and tears ensued" at the surprise party.

"I clandestinely swallowed a baby aspirin to prevent myself from having a heart attack. It was the end of a perfect day, and the beginning of a new life together," Wong wrote. "Well played, fiancé. Well played."

While this may be the first time both Twitter and Facebook have been used to propose, several couples have used each of the social media platforms to pop the question -- including musician Deadmau5, who proposed to Kat Von D via Twitter, and this couple, who got engaged on Facebook.
