I recently saw a morning show news report that Facebook is the new hook up spot for people to find their latest lovers including those who end up in adulterous affairs.
I think the people listed as my friends list are all fantastic people. I really do. They live all over the world and in my backyard, they are raising cool kids, they are single, married, partnered, they have fascinating jobs and they are doing amazing things for the betterment of the world. They are feeding hungry children and assisting in world peace. They love puppies and kittens. They generally rock and are good people. But I am not going to have an affair with any of them, of that I am certain.
Did you know there’s an entire website devoted to Facebook Cheating? A website to share stories for cheaters and cheatees to get feedback on questions. An entire community popping up because of cheating via a social networking site.
So, let’s see, if I wanted to cheat on Facebook, I’d have to make sure I never commented on my boyfriend’s wall, or maybe I would just unfriend him altogether to not look obvious, but then would that look weird? I’d for sure still want to check up on who he is friends with, who is commenting on his wall and what posts he is “liking” on his friend’s pages so unfriending him wouldn’t work. For certain though, he couldn’t comment on my posts, in fact, he shouldn’t even hit the like button on any of my status updates but then is that weird? I’d have to be careful when my lover is wanting to instant chat because it is fairly noticeable when you are on a chat feature. Plus, even harder when your spouse is used to you instant messaging with him sitting 5 feet away. Not smart! Twitter DM would probably be a good option though.
Should my husband be worried that I spent a lot of time thinking about how social media cheating works? Besides the obvious reasons for not cheating it also sounds like a lot of work. I can’t say I’ve got the energy or time.
And that’s because I’m married.
