Social Network Behavior and Romantic Relationships: A Across-lagged Panel Analysis
Midwestern Psychological Association
A longitudinal study examines the correlation between social networking behaviors and romantic relationship variables. Rather than being harmful to relationships, analysis indicates that most behaviors are reflections of the relationship’s current state. Flirtation and public praise are exceptions, with the former diminishing relationships, and the latter enhancing.
