Social networking is that wonder of the internet and technology which has caused immense mingling between the people and the barriers of regions, borders and geographic locations are completely vanished now. Facebook has broadened the horizons of the people by letting them communicate with each other and coming out of just their own personal shell of life.
But even though social networking sites like Facebook has served the global masses in many ways and through different angles, still there are many great disadvantages of social networking too that can lead to lifelong hazardous impacts. Such a problem occurs when Facebook leaves negative consequences on the relationships of people.
Many boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands and wives have become extremely insecure due to it. They are always suspicious about what their partner is doing over the social networking sites as people can easily get connected through these sites. The bond of trust which is the most important in keeping up any relationship is getting to be at the stake just because of the insecurity created by social networking.
Social networking is like an addiction. People who once become a part of it just remain stuck with it forever and forget about other stuff completely. This is something very serious for relationships. In order to keep up the spark in relationships, they require a lot of care, quality time and attention. Social networking has taken all this from people towards itself and the loved ones of people remain neglected. Due to this problem, the worth of relationships is getting lesser day by day and people are getting away from each other unconsciously just by doing social networking and spending time there to make new friends and forget the ones who have been there since forever for them.
It has been witnessed that through one of the most popular social networking site in the world, the divorce rate is getting higher and higher with each passing year. Just by setting up a status or sharing some news with people over a social networking site has created a nuisance for many people in relationships and that eventually led to broken relationships. Also, many people who have been very happily married have left their partner just because they found out somebody new through social networking and they went away with him/her. Misunderstandings have been created through social networking amongst partners. People have started to lie and cheat to their partners which they had never done before.
The damage of social networking sites like Facebook for relationships is just endless. It has even caused problems like depression, suicidal attempts and other psychological disorders. People whose partners neglect them due to social networking or leave them for somebody else they found through social networking are mostly found suffering from such ailments.
Hence, even though you might believe that social networking is the most amazing gift of technology to you but it is highly recommended that you use it very carefully without getting addicted to it. Its adverse impacts can ruin your otherwise strong relationships and at the end you will be left with nothing but regret.
