Relationship Status: Divorced
I’m as addicted to Facebook as anyone, but some people just don’t understand that whatever goes on that wall is there for all to see…including lawyers. Some people of lower moral character may now regret their posts, pokes, tags, and random gallivanting in Farmville pastures, when they are brought up in court, during divorce proceedings.
Facebook, the most popular social networking destination, is cited in two-thirds of divorce cases, followed by MySpace at 14 percent and Twitter at five percent.
But despite the social networking revolution of the last five years, the divorce rate in the United States has remained relatively stable, suggesting that Facebook and the like don’t necessarily lead to more divorce — but they do make a divorce lawyer’s job a lot easier.
