So­cial media bonds

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Not just shop­ping to­gether, cou­ples who spend time to­gether on Face­book tend to share a stronger bond and en­joy a longer-last­ing re­la­tion­ship than those who avoid see­ing each other online, a re­cent study has re­vealed. Re­searchers from the Univer­sity of Wis­con­sin-Madi­son found that cou­ples who were chat­ting on Face­book, echoed those feel­ings in real life and were likely to have bet­ter mar­i­tal ties. Peo­ple tend to in­ter­nalise what they say about them­selves in public. “We were in­ter­ested ap­ply­ing this to the idea that if you de­clare your com­mit­ment pub­licly, you might per­ceive your­self as more com­mit­ted to that part­ner,” said Catalina Toma, study co-au­thor.
