Better keep it all cool with the catching up with old friends and watch out, because it's being reported that 1 in 5 divorces in the US have cited Facebook as a reason.
According to a study:
Facebook is cited in 1 out of every 5 divorces in the United States, according to a recent survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML). Furthermore, 81 percent of the country’s top divorce attorneys say they have seen an increase in the number of cases using social networking evidence during the past five years. Last but not least, Facebook is the unrivaled leader for online divorce evidence with 66 percent citing it as the primary source.
Don't panic if you think that Facebook will destroy
the world your marriage on purpose. Most of the splits are because of strained marriages to begin with.
But just the fact that you're on a "social network," something built specifically to help you be more social with everyone, means it's easier to get caught up in intimate situations and conversations that are prone to lead to more severe forms of cheating!
So what can you do about it?
"Remind yourself why you’re using a given service and regularly assess your intentions with the people you’re frequently communicating with. Facebook may not call itself a dating website, but hundreds of millions use it to connect on varying levels. Intimate conversations, even online ones, should only be reserved for your significant other."
Sounds easy enough if you just take the time to think about what you're doing, and how your significant other could be affected by it!
