Responsible social media use during your divorce

On Behalf of | Jan 26, 2024 | Divorce

With social media being such a big part of everyday life, it may be tempting to vent your frustrations online during your divorce. However, doing so can actually make the divorce process more difficult.

There are some things to consider for managing your social media activity during this period.

Choose your words carefully

Ranting angrily on social media rarely makes you feel better in the long run. It also provides written evidence that your ex’s lawyer could potentially use against you. Take time to calm down before posting anything about your divorce online. If you need to vent, do so privately to a trusted friend or therapist.

Avoid posting personal details

Be careful not to share confidential information related to your divorce proceedings, finances and child custody arrangements. Anything you post on social media becomes a public record that your ex and their lawyer will have access to. Do not announce major life changes or moves before you finalize them.

Consider a social media break

You may want to temporarily deactivate your social media accounts during your divorce. This can help you avoid the temptation to post regrettable content. It also limits your ex’s ability to monitor your activities.

Focus on the positives

Going through a divorce is hard, but it can also lead to personal growth. Share encouraging quotes or thoughts that uplift you. Post about the things you are grateful for. Surround yourself with positive people and messages online.

Be mindful of what you share online as it could impact your divorce proceedings. With some caution, you can still use your social media to build a strong network of support during this transition.
