Does a fork or spoon encourage overeating or becoming obese?
The truth is social media, the Internet and other ways of connecting with people are nothing but (tools). A fork can be used to eat a salad or it can be used to eat a slice of double fudge cake. It's the (individual) that decides how they want to use the tool.
Having said that I will agree that for those who (want) to cheat social media makes it (easier) to reach out to someone from the privacy of their own home. Anyone who gets cheated on and blames "social media" instead of their mate is living in denial.
People decide to cheat. Focusing on (how) a person cheated doesn't address the question of (why) they cheated.
