What Is the Correlation Between Facebook and Divorce?
The Chicago Tribune reported on the dangers of social networking. The author asks, “Do social media sites make cheating easier?”
In any technology, there are benefits as well as costs and risks. Social networking technologies are no different.
A recent survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found that 81 percent of divorce attorneys have seen an increase in the number of cases using social networking evidence during the past five years. More than 66 percent of those attorneys said the No. 1 site most often used as evidence is Facebook, with its 400 million registered users.
Another recent survey by Divorce-Online.com of more than 5,000 attorneys says Facebook is mentioned in about 20 percent of divorce cases.
