The use of cell phones, Facebook and other forms of social media have really gotten out of hand in my opinion. It’s rare these days to go somewhere and not see the majority of people walking around with their smart phones stuck to the end of their nose. Even rarer to pass a car where the driver isn’t yakking or texting to someone on their phone. And regardless of your age, it seems that most everyone you talk to will eventually mention their addictive behavior to Facebook.
It seems to me that people are forsaking good old fashioned face-to-face communication for some sort of electronic speaking instead. Heck, our daughters are in high school and they are courted and asked out on dates via text as opposed to being asked in person or even over the phone. It’s become a rare thing to find a young person who can actually carry on a conversation anymore!
We blogged about the prevalence of Facebook when it comes to infidelity before, and it just seems that things we have seen and heard recently indicate that it’s use- along with other social media, texting and email – have become even more prevalent for conducting various forms of cheating.
This leads to our discussion for this week…
What role has social media and technology played in your or your spouse’s affair?
Do you think that social media and technology play a role in erasing boundaries and increasing temptation?
How are you managing or monitoring these avenues that may lead to temptation?
Remember to respond to each other in the comments!
