Divorce Announcement: Should You Do It On Social Media?

Is announcing your divorce via social media -- say, a carefully worded status update on Facebook or a cheeky Instagram photo showing off your ring-less finger -- tasteless? Or is it a smart, relatively painless way to get the news across?

That's the question on our minds since we read a recent Indianapolis Star story on the pros and cons of announcing the end of a marriage online, be it in the form of a blog post or a brief, to-the-point tweet.

We were curious to know what our divorced readers had to say on the subject, so we took the question to them on Facebook and Twitter. Click through the slideshow below to see what they had to say, then head to the comments and let us know: Is announcing your split over social media smart or is it a little shameless?
