Is your marriage on the rocks?  Is Facebook to blame?

A new study suggests that there is a relationship between increased Facebook use and divorce.

The researchers, who published the study in the July 2014 edition of Computers in Human Behavior, first looked at the rise of Facebook use and the rate of divorce in individual states. They found that a 20% increase in the number of Facebook users in a given state is associated with a 4% increase in the divorce rate the following year.

Careful. There is a big difference between correaltion and causation.
