Social Media And Divorce

Here’s a report from CNN that reports that an online study has found that 1 in 5 divorce cases refer to Facebook. The most common reason for the Facebook reference was that spouses were having sexually charged chats with “friends” on the social media site. Apparently there is even a support group for wronged spouses called “Facebook Caused Divorce.” The CNN story reports that the ability to access Facebook (and other social media sites) from mobile devices exacerbates the problem. Of course, in what can only be described as an unbelievable irony, when I first clicked on the video report, it was immediately preceded by an ad for the Palm Pixi – a mobile device.
