Has facebook had any impact on your relationship what so ever? Has it allowed you to know things about your bf/gf that you wouldn't have known otherwise?

Does it help you keep an eye on them? Do you go stalking on their profile analysing every single friend, picture, wall message and status comment?

If you know your they're going on a night out do you eagerly await for the pictures to be uploaded so you can see just exactly what went on?

Overall would you say facebook has helped your relationship or made it worse off? Are there some things you see/read that you wish you hadn't?

Question time over time for your answers.......

It did with my last one - things got very difficult very quickly.

However, now me and my other half block each other on the news feed but can still see all each other's profiles. Never get into the habit of checking their profile - it isn't a nanny state after all, and jealousy always ruins things.

No :/ Why would I want to go through and analyse his entire profile? It's basically spying...

Nope it hasnt really changed things, although we did get into argument once about a status! haha.
I dont see the point in checking his FB and he doesnt check mine either. We also never leave comments to each other on there either!

My bf, now my ex, used to get really jealous and angry if I put someone else rather than him with me in my profile pic... stupid.

Ha ha! I'm the thread starter from that other similar one...and while I do it now, that's only because I saw him getting closer to a few girls, and thought I might see his behaviour changing. And it did. Before then, I never felt I had anything to worry about and wouldn't be checking up on him, because there was always trust.

My boyfriend uses facebook about once a fortnight, even if I wanted to there check up on him there wouldn't be anything exciting!

The only problems facebook has caused in my relationship is that we couldn't decide whether to have our status as just 'in a relationship' or to be 'in a relationship with' eachother lol... We hate people in our business and as such just decided to leave it blank. It would have been for other people, not us anyway!

Facebook private messages seems to be where we most frequently resolve arguments. If anything it's helped our relationship.

Not at all, we never use it to talk to each other, got other more private things for that, and out of all the profiles I visit on a regular basis his is most definitely not one of them

And I'd like to think if he had something he wanted to hide he wouldn't be stupid enough to put it on a public social networking site :dry:

Facebook is a way of communicating.

It has affected my relationships through what I've said to people, but not in any special way that couldn't be achieved via other means (texting, just asking someone in person, etc.)

The closest thing to a unique effect would be getting phone numbers from my friends when I lost all my contacts.

It's created a couple of tense moments I suppose... for example: according to Facebook I'm married to some girl who lives in Florida (I'm in Virginia). My girlfriend didn't really like that (since I can't put that I'm in a relation with her AND say I'm married).
All it took was a few repetitions of "IT'S JUST FACEBOOK" for her to leave the issue alone tho :cool:

Went on my boyfriends a few times, mainly because i am SO nosey. Then one day went on genuinely to look at this guys profile that i wasn't friends with, cos he had some pics i wanted to see, and my boyf had left a facebook chat convo on with this girl and he was flirting with her, so confronted him. We sorted that, but he was ennoyed i went on it.


Thennn one of his mates broke up with his gf and i went on his to see if he had spoken to my boyfriend about it, and read the convo where my boyfriend was saying that he kindof wanted to be single atm, but just cos he wanted to f*** other girls

After a while i spoke to him about that, and we sorted it.

But now he has changed his password, which kind of ennoys me sometimes. But i am nosey, i admit it, so i can't help myself sometimes!
