According to a new study, individuals who make heavy use of social media websites may be more likely to engage in adultery and/or divorce. Specifically, those who are avid users of Twitter, according to the study, may be at higher risk. The research, of course, has its limitations, among which is the fact that those who participated were more likely to be heavy Twitter users since that is how the survey was promoted.
A similar trend has been reported in previous research regarding the connection between Facebook use and divorce. That study found that those who were heavy users of Facebook were more likely to encounter Facebook-related conflicts with their significant other. Not to mention the fact that Facebook makes it easy to get back in touch with old flames and ruin a current relationship. In some cases, this can lead to infidelity and divorce.
