Facebook and Relationships.
Facebook is one of the most popular online social media website today. It allows us to connect anywhere and anytime with family, friends and love ones. In addition, people can find potential partners online. But why are many couples today are at a greater risk of breaking up when they sign up on Facebook? The New York Times had invited four people to debate this question “Has Facebook Ruined Love?” According to David Wygant who wrote “Put the Smartphone Down. Now”; he stated that social media prevents people from having a relationship in the real world. Wygant argues that people are more focused on what is happening on Facebook than around them and they can lost a great chance of meeting a potential partner. He suggested that if people want to have a relationship, they should put away their smartphones while they are outside or leave it at home.
On the other hand, Demetria Lucas, who used as a title “It’s a Gift and a Curse”, she discloses that Facebook can be the deal maker or deal breaker of a relationship. Lucas does not deny that Facebook is a very good tool to meet people and hopefully start a relationship. On the other hand, many partners who are friends on Facebook can have problems in their relationship that can even cause a break up.

In sum, Facebook is a great social media to connect with people all over the world. However, befriending with your partner on Facebook is not a good idea. Simply, because as Lucas points out the potential for relationship issues is easier to arise via this social media. Some of my peers in the class would object to my choice for the best argument because they feel that the author is based on her views toward Facebook and its implications with couples. However, I insist that the evidence and survey results does indeed show that Facebook is a catalyst for ruined relationships.
