One in five divorces caused by Facebook

Written by Nedim Hadzic

Lawyers claim
Social networking site Facebook is slowly creeping into every aspect of life as a survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers said that one in five American divorces are directly linked to Facebook.

As many as 80 percent of divorce lawyers reported increase in social media caused cases. Facebook naturally leads the way with 66 percent; MySpace has 15 percent whereas Twitter and the rest come in at 14 percent.

Many divorces have been incited by questionable messages and photos on Facebook, with many cases including rekindling the old flames. This means that full scale invasion of privacy by people who you couldn’t wait to get rid of in real life is no longer the biggest issue.

Divorce is caused by people who should not have been married in the first place. Facebook is just the new excuse. Years from now, whatever is the new social medium, we'll be seeing same article, new title. :-*

Thanks for the focus on Facebook’s impact on marriages. We noticed you used the “1 in 5 divorces involve Facebook” stat. The “stats” around this issue have gotten so loose and messy that we investigated the 14-month history of this stat and put the findings on our blog, Techlationships .com. We encourage you to read “Debunking the 1-in-5 Divorces Linked to Facebook Stat” at http://bit.ly/1in5FB and maybe do a story on it.

Let us know if you have any questions! K Jason and Kelli Krafsky (The Social Media Couple)
