The advent of social media technology has brought with it many perks and comfortable mornings reading the latest happenings with a favorite beverage via the computer. The current world has seen enormous societal changes with social media’s introduction. Facebook is certainly a contributor to communication, socialization, and connections with friends, family and others. When “others” outside the current social circle of friends bequeath a friend request, life as known before could be changed dramatically.
In a romantic relationship, this could spell disaster with friend requests being incurred from ex-lovers, ex-spouses and even those who may have questionable objectives despite the ties in the current relationship. Statistics now prove that one of the leading causes of divorce in the current society is, in fact, Facebook. These findings bring along the question: how does one navigate the many forms of social media with its many perks and connections and still respect the boundaries of important relationships already in place.
History demonstrates the means of communicating and getting to know one another was limited to happenstance gatherings with friends and family, or through connections at work. Ex significant others were out of the picture once the relationship ended except through phone contact or running into them again in a public place. Past relationships could more easily be left behind and the door permanently shut to any future socialization once the relationship was dissolved. When an ex-lover’s communications are rekindled through social media, it’s time to take a look at the dynamics in the current relationship. With open communication and transparency in a committed relationship, many of the downsides of social media never come into play, like dishonesty and violations of trust.
