I would say yes, but that doesn't make facebook evil; imagine that your wife/husband is talking often with her/his ex, would that make you happy? I don't think so. Once a relationship is over it's over, basta. If it's over but your partner is talking, the partner shows interest and the relation may be over physically but not mentally.

I, for instance, have never taken contact with my ex and never would; if such thing happens it means that I still have, conscious or unconscious, feelings for the ex and I have therefore not let go of those emotions but I have put them to rest.

Besides facebook in a way can't be evil; the people are evil.

I observe took a lot of people with solitude not even contemplation of. I could find out what an important being has been up to with no trouble on their partition and don't have to be anxious about contact them. It's the internet, come again? we do stay there everlastingly or at smallest amount a long instance.

Rant?
I cringe when I see people treating it like some type of news media and every one of their friends are the fans *talking about people people, not websites that have a facebook page ;)*. They are reporting everything they do. I don't have an issue with how people use it, just more concerned when people are updating it regularly to the point they might aswell they have just gone to the bathroom.

E.G
"Just had brunch with my friends at such & such a place (with location posted via iphone)" okay?
"Just got back from a run with my boyfriend, it was awesome" hooray?
"Missed my bus today, hour late work, crap!" don't let you boss find out?
"Updates the photos section displaying everywhere they go" - been with one of those crowds where they all had cameras just to put it on their facebook lols were had.

Then there is the person spending about 6 hours a day on facebook. To some they treat it like a diary.
Me, the purpose is to chat purely to people that have moved far away and it is a tool to keep in touch. I keep as much information about myself off of there and leave little because I believe in personal privacy and I see too many people with privacy not even thought of. I could find out what someone has been up to easily on their wall and don't have to worry about contacting them. It's the internet, what we do stays there forever or atleast a long time.

On a side note for the marriage. Yeah I can see how it can. Husband getting jealious over Wife talking to a guy she just met or along those lines, vice versa for Wife/Husband. Cause a strain in the relationship because they're spending more time on "facebook" instead of putting time aside for "relationship" stuff like movies etc. Or simply looking after their children.

Facebook is neither.
It's all decided by facebook's users.
Facebook has both users ranging from devilish to godlike I guess.

Facebook ruins people's social lives, yet another reason to avoid it.

?? Then those ppl are doing something wrong, since Facebook isn't ruining social lives, actually it will increase them; if used right. Socializing was the hole point when Zuckerberg invented "The Photo Address Book" aka Facebook.

Take a look at the early poll results. I bet most who are voting "Yep, Facebook is the devil" secretly love Facebook ;)

OK. I'll admit. This is an interesting one. I'm curious to see what people say

I dislike Facebook too, but it doesn't cause marriages to fail, the people do. it's like blaming a car manufacturer for a car crash. It's the people messing up and not be faithful or communicated with spouse correctly who are causing the break down.

Anyone blaming Facebook for their mistake is a joke.

You have to agree though that Facebook is certainly making it easier.

I have an interesting post for you guys

I gave my wife a laptop, with logmein installed. She didn't have any facebook, or anything, but one of the first time she tried to google something it was her old highschool mates, and an ex-boyfriend included. Just Google, never tried to contact them.

I don't blame her, She is a dedicated mom and we all are curious, and besides I have done the same thing too, but just curiosity (all my ex's are fat pigs now)

I kept monitoring her activities now and then, but basically she was doing mom stuff, kids care, health, decoration, etc and after a while she signed into facebook page but basically to keep tracking of my activities on FB (poor noob!!!)

Finally after a few days she called me cause she wanted to turned off her facebook page, cause she was gettin weird pictures from unknown people. And that was it...

I think we all have curiosity, thats normal, but just a few are bold enough to mess with ex'es.. Or should I say dumb enough?

Why are you married to a woman you dont trust? Why marry her if you are going to spy on her. You must be a VERY insecure individual and i feel sorry for you.

Many people lack common sense, or they're weak. Us humans are funny creatures.

NOW,this I can comment on! I had my marriage ended because of FB! I would like to say also that there where no problems before hand (this was years ago now) I found my ex'es first love and mentioned it, she wanted to see how he was doing so contacted him, he was going through a ruff time and she was talking with him about it! I was aware of all that was going on and did nothing to stop anything as it seemed very normal. I was shocked after a year had pasted and had not heard much more about this her grandma was dying so I sent her to her home town, and guess that they met up at this point face to face after 20 years of not seeing one another! Long story short she and him devised a plan to get money out of me to help him get his band off the ground (45 years old, thrash metal, talk about dead before it started) he was still married himself and there was not to much I wouldn't do for the ex while we were together! I started to see what she was up to moved the cash out of her reach and comforted her on what she was up to. I kicked her out for as I could not trust her anymore in my eyes and they ended up getting together about 4 or 5 months later! They are both now train wrecks, she is miserable and super broke. They have lived in 12 apartments in 4 years. I wouldn't 100% say Facebook was the problem but it not being there would have never presented the opportunity for them to re-aquatint each other. I boycotted FB for years after, but now back on there. I would say to anyone that mite be in love and seeing there other half looking for ex'es to ask if they are happy (watch the response closely, as women are very good at secrets) and start preparing for the worst.

It is one small world, but I would hate to have to paint it!!!
