Twitter was responsible for 20 percent of UK divorces

Last year, Raleigh, North Carolina attorneys reported that Facebook and MySpace were involved in most divorce cases due to a spouse's inappropriate behavior on such social networking sites. Now, it seems the UK has the same complaint.

Divorce-Online, a UK divorce website, conducted a survey consisting of 5,000 people in 2009 and 2011. The participants were asked a series of questions regarding their spouse's behavior, which included their online behavior.

According to the survey's results, 20 percent of behavior petitions in 2009 contained the word Facebook. In 2011, this number jumped to 33 percent.


Other social networking sites didn't reach that high of a percentage. For instance, Twitter was only at 20 percent in 2011, and the problem associated with the network is that spouse's used it to make comments about exes.

However, the reasons for listing Facebook on the behavior petitions were inappropriate messages sent to a person of the opposite sex, Facebook friends reporting spouse's behavior, and separated spouses posting harsh comments about each other.

"People need to be careful what they write on their walls as the courts are seeing these posts being used in financial disputes and children cases as evidence," said Mark Keenan, a spokesman for Divorce-Online.
