SOCIAL MEDIA RELATIONSHIP MATH MAGIC!

FACEBOOK IS INVOLVED IN 90% OF ALL DIVORCES *

(For 2010 that would mean it was involved in just over a quarter of a million divorces in the US alone)

Let’s do some Social Media Math.   EHarmony we are told has the highest number of marriages among Social Media dating sites; on average, 236 a day.    Guess what?   They are bragging that they are representing 2% of all New Marriages in the United States.    Let’s do the math.  236 x 365 = 86,140 eHarmony marriages.

    Let’s round down and say Facebook was only cited in 225,000 divorces in 2010.

    225,000 Facebook divorces -86,140 EHarmony Marriages = 138,860 Net Social Media Divorces

138,860 Net Social Media Divorces for 2010

So what does this mean?  It means that marriages are coming apart on Facebook nearly 40% faster than EHarmony is putting relationships together.

Hey, EHarmony!  Better start bringing your “A” game because Facebook is leaving you in the dust!

Does this really mean Facebook and Social Media are causing divorces?

Divorce existed before facebook, social media and the internet.   That said, it has never been easier to hook up, bliss out and flake out then it is today.   What makes it worse though, is that you are being actively marketed to by websites that want to help you do just that.

Consider that Ashley Madison.com – The World’s Leading Married Dating Service – boast 8.5 million members.   That is just one website among hundreds that is currently out there marketing its services to promote extramarital affairs.

Now, once you are on social media, such as facebook, regular dating services, legal services and other products will be put before you as part of a carefully managed marketing program.  No, they are not trying to promote divorce.   Yes, like all marketing they are focusing on your dissatisfaction and fears.

So…does social media and the internet cause divorce?   The jury is out on that one.   Does it increase dissatisfaction, promote consumerism and destroy the basic foundations of personal identity by replacing it with conspicuous consumerism?  ABSOLUTELY!
