FB was the straw that broke the camels back in my marriage, although STBXH would deny it was EVER an issue? Sad thing is, I was the one who introduced him to it and boy am I kicking myself now. He would spend all day on it, even coming home from work SEVERAL times a day to play one of those fsrming games. That's where he met the woman he ended up having an EA with. I ended up finding messages on his phone (that he purchased just so hed'd have access to his FB account) between the two that were very sexually explicit. Once I found those and confronted him with it is when he exploded and said he wanted a divorce. Towards the end, prior to me finding the messages, he would come home from work, plant himself on the couch in the corner so no one could see what he was doing and carry on with her and others Im sure until all hours of the night. I still get sick to my stomach when I think about what he was doing. The hilarious thing though is that this woman never posted pictures of herself on her FB page. I finally did some digging and found some pictures of her on her brother in laws page. She ended up being extremely large and butt ugly. What a jerk, both of them.
I personally think FB and other social sites are an extreme danger to relationships. People engage in risky behavior online because its "safe" when in reality its very unsafe and, just like drugs, very addicting. I've said it before here on TAM and it bears repeating, FB needs to have a match and a can of gas taken to it.
