    Does social media encourage cheating?

    Absolutely, Facebook and dating sites such as POF and Match.com, have made it very easy for people to hide activities, and/or revive old relationships with an old flame.

    They definitly make everything easier. Virtual romances are easy to develop. Less inibitions and the computer protection allows people to be free also.

    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.
    - One man's opinion! :-)

    It can, many who have troubled relationships turn to strangers on line. And when you are attracted and getting along better with that person than the one your committed to, you start to feel more insink and eventully you cant wait to talk to that person and start distancing yourself from your partner. Eventully you meet, cheat and get caught up...
