My blogpost today highlights a recent online article by Gwendolyn Seidman about some research into what is involved when people engage in surveillance of their partner's activity on Facebook (described in the article as 'stalking' though it is debatable whether that emotive term is really the right one to use to describe this kind of surveillance). The conclusion of the article is that the highlighted research indicates that:
"...snooping on your partner's Facebook page is unlikely to destroy your relationship, but if you find yourself preoccupied with this activity it could be a sign that you're dissatisfied with your relationship or that you don't trust your partner and feel you have a lot to lose if the relationship ends."
I have some reservations about drawing too many conclusions from the research which seems to have been quite small scale. Nonetheless, it's an interesting article. To read it in full, click on the link below:
