Everyone and their grandma have a Facebook nowadays, right? Well, things just got a little more inclusive for the social network, which is now hosting the first-ever profile for a fetus.
Marriah Greene, who has not been born yet, has found her way online and is building quite the fanbase. The idea was that of her parents, Matt and Ellie Greene of Whitehouse, Texas, who serve as the moderators to Marriah’s Facebook page.
Initially, the thought behind the profile was simply to keep friends and family up to date on the pregnancy. The Greenes’ thought it would be a “playful” way to tell everyone what was going on. Noting as the baby-to-be some clever statuses: “I am quite the kicker,” “Studied Labor and Delivery at Tummy University”, and “Swimming, swimming, just keep swimming.”
As of June 1st, 2011, Marriah actually had over 350 friends – of both close friends and relatives. However, word had spread across the information superhighway and, on June 3rd, the profile page was converted into a Facebook group – allowing thousands to keep up-to-date on Marriah’s every moment until the conception.
Check out her Facebook group to get the most up to date information on Marriah’s birth and join the group.
