Let's face it, one of the underrated side of Facebook is that it's a homewrecker. And its homewrecking powers just keep growing.

In December of 2010, a study found that Facebook was cited in one out of every five divorces. Now, about a year later, it's increased to one in every three divorces.


There are three main ways Facebook plays into divorce proceedings.

  1. Someone catches their spouse sending inappropriate Facebook messages to someone else.
  2. One person posts negative comments about their soon-to-be-ex-spouse on Facebook.
  3. The spouses unfriend each other as their divorce is going on, and their friends report back to them about their spouse's behavior on Facebook.

Do you think Facebook should be allowed to be used in a divorce proceeding?
