Tampa Bay, this is not a BIG shock that A new report from Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking, shows that couples who interact with others on Facebook are more likely to cheat on their significant other. The new study shows that the easy access Facebook offers people to reconnect with a lost love or connect with someone entirely new to them, often becomes a temptation too hard to resist.
According to GMA News the report stated, ""The results indicate that a high level of Facebook usage is associated with negative relationship outcomes, and that these relationships are indeed mediated by Facebook-related conflict."
Further studies on the subject conducted by Dr. Ramani Durvasula, show that people use Facebook as an outlet to "act out" whether they consciously intend to do so or not.
"Now you can find them in a late night search — bang bang, put their name in and there they are. And then so it starts a little bit of liking, a little bit of flirting, and something that seems so harmless to start with escalates like wildfire."
How do you feel about studies showing Facebook to be an increased source for cheating?
