Now more common than ever, social media has taken a serious role in everyone’s lives. While it has many advantages, social media also has a lot of hidden negativities, especially when it comes to divorce. Whether you use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media platform, nothing is safe on the Internet.

One of the most important ways in which social media can be detrimental to your divorce is privacy. Even if you feel your accounts are locked away for only your closest friends to see, the truth of the matter is, anyone has access to anything you post online. In a fit of anger, you may say something less than positive about your spouse or your children-if found, you can be sure this will be used against you.

Financially speaking, social media can be dangerous. When it comes to alimony or child support, all your finances will be thoroughly evaluated. If you happen to post a picture while on vacation, or perhaps of your latest shopping spree, even the most innocent post or photograph can be manipulated to incriminate you.

As you can see, the best protection is prevention. By removing yourself from all social media accounts until your divorce is finalized, or making sure you are as private as possible, you can go a long way when it comes to preventing any additional contentions in your divorce.
