Abstract

This study examines the relationship between social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, etc, and how the use of these websites can impact a Monogamous relationship on the campus of Clark Atlanta University. The study was based on the premise that too much social media use among couples will ultimately negatively impact a monogamous relationship. The results revealed that African Americans students who completed the survey do not believe that social media sites, like Facebook cause jealousy in relationships. When the chi square test was applied it indicated that there was no significant relationship (.218). The chi square test also indicated that there was no significant relationship (.524) between social media like Facebook and Twitter ending relationships.
