The Internet and rise of social media websites have forever changed the way people communicate and share information. Today, it's easier than ever to reunite with an old friend or flame via a social media website. Many of these sites also provide opportunities to network and forge new friendships and relationships. Facebook is undoubtedly one of the most well known and widely used social media websites in the world.
By the end of 2013, worldwide an estimated 1.23 billion people had a Facebook account. The fact that so many people use the social media site recently prompted researchers at Boston University to study possible correlations between Facebook use and marital happiness.
