Networking site Facebook was ranked as the cause of the breakdown of households in the U.S. with 66 per cent is used as a source of evidence of a divorce case. Then followed with 15 percent of MySpace, Twitter and other 5 percent of 14 percent.

It is true; the real cause behind the divorce is the missing love and affection between the couple not the social sites. But if one has actually decided to get separated, divorce mediation is a better choice.
