In a study of UK divorce proceedings, 20 percent of suits filed mentioned Facebook as a contributing factor to marital unhappiness. Couples the world-over began to flock away from the site now painted as an avenue to infidelity. But what media channels failed to provide was that unhappy marriages just happened to be more prone to spending time apart, and therefore, on Facebook. In the frenzy that ensued, however, this voice of reason was drowned out. To this day, people are still married to the myth that Facebook itself causes divorces.
