How your ‘innocent’ social media 'likes' are ruining your real life romance!
"It can be something as simple as repeatedly 'liking' someone's posts on Instagram or commenting on someone s Facebook," said Martin Graff, a psychologist at the University of South Wales in the UK.Other actions that can be considered micro-cheating include frequently checking someone's Instagram, messaging someone without your partner's knowledge, or adding a former lover on the messaging site Snapchat. However, critics of the term micro-cheating say that the concept encourages controlling behaviour and the surveillance of online communications.
