In our culture, there is an increased use of social media. Social media has changed the way people and families interact with each other. Many theorists believe social media has advantages of connecting people, while other theorists believe social media negatively affects relationships, for many reasons. Social workers need to be aware of the couples’ use of social media and explore the effects on the relationship.
