No-one really stops and thinks about the effects this social media website has on a person’s relationship. Researchers from the University of Missouri showed that Facebook causes conflict between couples because either the said partner is staying in contact with a previous partner that may lead physical or emotional cheating. In another situation the partner is paranoid and is consistently keeping check on the others page.
