A great relationship is one in which partners are able to choose to be faithful or not, but choose faithful. If cheating has entered the relationship, it isn't because Marc Zuckerberg was born.
I've been on the receiving end from years back and I am less likely to monitor social media activities of my (now) partner.
Food for thought.

i differ with your view a bit.
while it is somewhat true that 'social media is not the reason for cheating', every temptation promotes the possibility of infidelity.
ideally, you are right; that we choose to be faithful no matter what.
but some people are weaker than others.
suppose that someone is presented 5 temptations in their life?
but they are strong enough to resist. how about 10 temptations?
how about 100? and so on. the odds increase. there are those % of people that would possibly never cheat if it weren't so easy.
the very strong will resist just about anything and everything, but not everyone is so strong and even the good might fail.
social media has increased those temptations at least many times over.
on the other hand, like the atom bomb, it's not going away and we need to learn to live with it.
