Pitfalls of social media use during divorce

Fight Your DUI Charges. Contact Us Today.

When getting a divorce, many people in Nebraska might understandably look to strengthen connections with friends and family members. This might even include increasing communications on social media platforms. However, it is wise for divorcing spouses to take a cautious approach to what they post on these sites both during and after their divorce.

As explained by Prevention magazine, the cardinal rule of never saying anything negative about the other spouse and parent in front of the children holds true on social media. Children who have their own social media sites can all too easily see and read their parents' posts.

For anyone looking for a new job during the time that they are getting divorced, it is important to remember and know that potential employers are highly likely to check out social media profiles as well as resumes before making a hiring decision. A profile fraught with vindictive or bitter posts will not stand up well against the profile of another candidate who appears more positive and maybe more emotionally stable.

Forbes also encourages people to think twice before considering themself safe just by blocking their spouse from seeing their profiles. The whole point of social media is that it creates a very intertwined network so friends of friends or connections of connections may see what a person posts and not all of these people may look favorably on what they see as they may hold an allegiance to the other spouse. They may even be willing to share information gleaned from social media with the opposing spouse.
