I can't count the amount of times I have heard someone mention seeing something on their partners Facebook/instagram they didn't like or mention a girl/guy that seemed to be paying their partner a lot of attention online. My friends girlfriend literally stopped talking to him because she didn't like the fact he liked other girls pictures, yet she has hundreds of randoms on hers and gets alot of attention which he doesn't like.

What are your thoughts? Would you mind your partner liking pictures of other girls /guys?

Trust is key, regardless of the era we're living in, and how easy (or hard) it is to keep a secret

I don't think social media itself is the problem. I think, as the poster above said, it's trust. If it wasn't social media, it'll be email, text messages, etc.

Like previous post, they lack of trust of each other faithfulness. They're doubting and over-thinking. I believe it's very childish for them to get angry over that and it makes me worrisome if they're actually seriously mature enough or sensible enough to have a relationship :/

YOU GOTTA BELIEVE THAT YA MAN OR YA WOMAN LOVES YA DEEPLY AND FAITHFULLY, LIKING DUH PIC DOESN'T MEAN THEY'RE NOT FAITHFUL. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

My online rule is simply.. Whatever you do, I'll be doing too. Don't like it, don't do it.

The amount of times I've had to say
"Baby she's just a friend I promise, it's just I... I (continue)"
In a New York italian accent is too high, so chyeah I'd say it can ruin relationships especially when the two people aren't mellow

But if it wasn't social media, you'd fin another another way. Social media doesn't ruin relationships - people do.

Yeah that's kinda linked with the last point, if the people in the relationship aren't calm people then it's destined to fail pretty much dude

Not really. Although it can lead to arguments- I've witnessed my best friend argue so much with her bf about his liking of pics on fb , which probably isn't helped by the fact she logs into his without him knowing!!

Yes. Social media is a tool for narcissism. People will inevitably feel insecure about their own relationships when they see happy couples on their Facebook feed jetting off on fantastic holidays and such.

It also feeds insecurity by allowing people too much access to other people's info (ie stalking ex girlfriends) and making comparisons

Social media encourages paranoia, especially amongst women.

I think it's a bit of both. Lack of trust destroys anyway, but with social media in the mix, and interconnectedness now, seems there isn't anything that won't get out eventually.
