We broke up on Facebook

Remember when people thought Facebook breakups were totally outrageous?

New survey results suggest a third of adults over the age of 18 have broken up with someone via Facebook, text or email.

Surprised? Me neither.

Facebook is no longer "just" technology. It's a valuable part of our daily interactions. Plus, seriously...who likes breaking up with someone face to face? The coward's route is always more appealing.

I still think that for the most part, technology-based breakups are tacky. But that belief applies mainly to long-term relationships. If you've only gone on one or two dates with someone, go ahead and cut ties via Facebook.

But use a private message, rather than a public wall post. Please.
