According to a new research, a person's memory is the greater threat to their romantic relationships and not social networking site, Facebook.
The Facebook versus memory research was designed to determine if contacts in a person's Facebook friends list who are desirable can pose greater threat to a person's relationship than potential romantic partners in a person's memory.
During the research, the volunteers were shown their friends list to determine recognition of potential sexual partners. However, it was found that Facebook friends were not perceived largely as romantic alternatives that can pose a threat to existing relationships.
The study was titled, "Facebook or Memory-Which Is the Real Threat to Your Relationship?". The researchers, Michelle Drouin and Daniel Miller, Indiana University-Purdue University, Fort Wayne, IN, and Jayson Dibble, Hope College, Holland, MI found that alternative, romantically desirable partners in people's memories are more threatening to a relationship than alternative partners that may exist on Facebook friends list. The researchers found that just thinking about a potential romantic partner can reduce relationship satisfaction and commitment to one's current partner.
"The alternative, romantically desirable partners that people keep in memories are more of a threat to existing relationships than are alternative partners they might consider from scrolling through their list of Facebook friends," explained researchers.
