These days, it is nearly impossible to get through a day without getting a series of Facebook updates on your smartphone.
There are, of course, people who have chosen never to use Facebook or the various other social media apps. However, because it is one of the most frequent ways people choose to communicate, it is impractical to take this hands-off approach to social media.
While many Facebook users are understandably tired of the seemingly never-ending birthday announcements and peer pressure to congratulate people, everyone is interested to see when a person changes their relationship status on his or her profile. When a person changes his or her status from single to being in a relationship and tags the person with whom he or she is in that relationship, many will click on the name to look at photos of the new love interest. In addition to the option to note your relationship status, there is also the option to say to whom you are married.
When someone gets a divorce or separates from their spouse, it is often a tough decision to change that status from married to single, knowing every one of that person’s Facebook friends will receive a status update and are free to send messages and comment publicly on their wall.
