Don’t argue

If the nature of your breakup was particularly controversial or toxic, avoid saying things in your announcement that will lead to public arguments. You can avoid this by following the previously mentioned tips like not tagging the person, not sharing too many details, and resisting the temptation to rant. Social media arguments are pointless and draining under normal circumstances, but engaging in a digital spat when emotions are running high is a recipe for total disaster. As much as humanly possible, keep it cute and if you must have it out with your ex, do so away from the public eye.
