Emma Barnett: Facebook meddling caused my marriage 'break-up'

Emma Barnett

WHEN I joined a fledgling Facebook in 2005, coming to the end of my university days, I took the youthful decision to list that I was in a relationship with my then boyfriend.

Fast forward seven years and said boyfriend is now my husband, Facebook has more than a billion users globally and has fast become most people's social identity on the internet.

Several times over the years my man and I have discussed 'breaking up' on Facebook as having any truly personal information on a third-party website, with ever-changing privacy settings, has always made him feel uneasy.
