Social Media’s Effect on Relationships Part 1

For my research paper I decided to look into how relationships are hindered by social media usage. I’ve always seen it in my relationship and in my friends. The idea for this paper actually came from watching how social media ruined a friend’s relationship. She had ever login and password for her boyfriend’s social media accounts and would keep tabs on who he was messaging or whose pictures he was liking.


I realized that jealousy was the biggest product of having social media. I want to research more about the how this jealousy works. For example, when your partner like someone else’s picture why do we get mad? Or if someone was to direct message your partner, why do we automatically assume they are flirting or even cheating?
