Study says it’s common for people to check on their ex-lovers via social media

FacebookDo you check on your ex-girlfriend on Facebook? If you said “yes,” you aren’t alone!

According to a recent study about the World Wide Web, it’s common for individuals to use social media sites to monitor the lives of their ex-partners. Most of the time, people keep themselves updated by viewing ex-lovers’ photos, videos, and other uploads.

“Prior to social networking tools, it was more difficult to monitor a former partner’s life,” explained Dr. Brenda K. Wiederhold, editor-in-chief of Cyberpsychology. “While social networking provides many positives, the ability to conduct interpersonal electronic surveillance may lead some individuals to suffer with prolonged feelings of uncertainty after a relationship ends. These results presented here should, however, be interpreted with caution, since the sample was comprised of heterosexual college students and may not extend to other groups.”
