Can Facebook affect a divorce? Yes.
With the rise of Facebook and social media, your Internet presence can become your worst enemy in a divorce. All of your posts, pictures, status updates, timeline events and everything in between can be used against you in divorce proceedings. This works both ways; anything your spouse posts can also be used against him or her.
