The Survey of 2000 UK adults also found that…
• 15 per cent had updated Facebook statuses to make a current, or ex-partner jealous.
• 48 per cent read their partner’s emails to check for cheating
• 20 per cent had scratched a car with a key
• 39 per cent had spread rumours about an ex for revenge
So by the looks of it, half the responders are in paranoid relationships, and just under that same amount will spread lies about you when you break up. Does that sound right to you? What’s your experience with Facebook and exes?
The interest comes after an 18 year old girl was sentenced to three months in a young offenders’ institution after hounding another girl of the same age for years, ultimately making a death threat over Facebook. (The survey was commissioned by Alibi, a crime drama channel.) [Telegraph]
