9 Tips to Prevent Social Media's Negative Impact on Relationships

Social media is so much a part of our lives these days, it’s easy to forget there was ever a time without it. 

It can be wonderful… it’s a great way to keep up with friends and family and share news, pictures and your thoughts with the world.

But, like most things on the Internet, social media has a dark side. A lot of drama happens there, and the effects might be more wide-ranging than you imagined. Remember, something shared just once on social media is out there on the Internet forever.

Here is how you can protect your marriage from social media. Try out these nine tips to reduce negative impact on marriage caused by social media.
