According to a new study people who often check their Facebook accounts have a higher chance of getting divorce, CBS Boston reported on September 2.
In the study entitled “Computers in Human Behavior” conducted by Boston University, researchers note divorce rates in the U.S. increased by 2 percent from 2008 and 2010, the same time Facebook users also drastically increased. Researchers found that individuals who excessively use social media sites have a higher chance of getting divorce. They think this is either because the use weakens the marriage, or, conversely, those with existing marital problems use social media more often.
