Entertainment And News, Heartbreak

Online social media has become a part of our everyday routine. Whether you’re on twitter, facebook, digg, tumblr, or whatever else, you have access too millions of people including people who are close to you in your own life. The most popular of these sites is facebook which will have 1 billion members before we know it. Facebook is a great way to keep in touch with friends, and keep tabs of your significant other.
Facebook stalking is something that we’re all guilty of. I don’t care if you were checking out the tits of the girl who lives down the hall or pictures of your buddies trip to Mexico, it still probably registers as fb stalking because it never stops there. It may start out just looking at your exes new years pics, but before you know it you 1000 pics in and furious. Now what if you are checking out your current significant others pics and you find something you don’t like? Odds are they were taken in the past before you were official or even in her life at all. But, people can’t help but to feel jealous and pissed off-it’s human nature. If you see a shot of your current girlfriend making out with a guy at a bar, even if it’s 3 years before you met, your mind i going to wander. The best thing to do would be to confront her and ask her to remove it. But don’t forget that there is probably something in your facebook account that you wouldn’t want her to see. Who cares anyway? Especially if it was taken before you met. However, if it’s closer to the time where you started dating ‘when I’d be a little weary.
No doubt you can catch a cheater on facebook. Even if you don’t find a picture on his or her profile, their friend’s may have it untagged in their album. Everyone knows the tricks. It’s nearly impossble to keep secrets now a days. And nothing would be worse than somebody else finding proof that my girlfriend cheated on me. If you think this is far fetched, in a recent article on msnbc, divorce attorneys came out and said:

“The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers says 81 percent of its members have used or faced evidence plucked from Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and other social networking sites, including YouTube and LinkedIn, over the last five years.”

So before you go out and cheat on your significant other, make sure nobody has a camera…a smart phone…a tablet…a netbook.. Actually you’re fucked either way.

What do you think? s it getting harder for cheaters in the age of technology? If you saw compromising pictures of your SO would you confront her or start thinking about cheating to exact your revenge?
Whatever you do just remember- in this day there are always eyes on you…
