Social Media and Affairs

As of 2017, it has been estimated that 81 percent of Americans use social media.  That percentage will keep growing and growing. Facebook is the most popular social media platform and the one that most adults use.

There is anecdotal evidence that Facebook has led to more affairs, one survey claims that 1 in 3 divorces started as an “online affair”, which quickly became a “physical affair”. The power of Facebook allows you to find former high school sweethearts, college friends, or boyfriends/girlfriends. Too often reaching out to these former friends/lovers can sometimes lead to sexual affairs.  This has led many sociologists to conclude that Facebook and social media has increased the amount of “cheating”.

On the flip side, Facebook and social media has also made it easier to identify and catch cheaters.  It is fairly easy to find out if someone is posting or messaging on Facebook.  Simply deleting a post will not prevent “digital fingerprints”.
