It’s good to publish positive aspects which are occurring in your relationship but nevertheless, do not publish negative issues ongoing online for the following reasons:
- Job Opportunities–>Employers will request a background check on you and if it turns out that you prefer posting personal business online, your chances of getting hired will not happen. They will see a different side to you which may affect work if hired that would be a waste of time, effort and resources.
- One Side Empathized while the other partner labeled as the “Bad Guy.”–> Social media is quite harmful to relationships because one person will be receiving sympathy to their online friends when explaining their side of an issue whereas the other person who did not share their viewpoint receives threats and name calling.
- Reputation Destroyed–> As it ties in with these two points above, once you post dramatic situations involving you and your partner, it can destroy one’s reputation in a heartbeat. What you post on the internet stays on the internet for life. There is no such thing as an automatic dry board “eraser” online.
Along with common sense and respect of privacy for you and your partner, avoiding to announce your problems on social media will prevent you both from embarrassment. It’s best to communicate effectively face to face and ensure that whatever problems arise will be solved without drama but rather instilling civilized mannerisms.
