Half of Us Secretly Check our Partner’s Facebook: The Impossible Question
According to a new survey, a lot of us are very sneaky when it comes to our partner's Facebook page!
A survey of 2,000 married people found that about 50% of them will check their partner's Facebook page without their knowledge. The most common reasons are to find out exactly who their partner is talking to, to see who they were out with, and to see if they were lying.
Additionally, almost 25% of couples say social media causes at least one fight a week, with 17% saying they fight about it everyday! Social media is also a common issue brought up in divorce proceedings, specifically Facebook pictures and posts.
I'm not really surprised by any of this information, because social media makes it so easy to connect with other people. I secretly checked my ex-boyfriend's Facebook, and one of my other exes used to check mine, so I've been on both sides of this situation. The best advice I can give is to be respectful of your partner and don't do anything you would be ashamed to show them. If you don't know how to NOT be a flirty jerk on Facebook, you should just not be in a relationship.
