Most affairs now begin online – 20% from Facebook

Did you know that around 70% of all affairs these days begin online, or that 20% begin on Facebook?

Which isn’t really all that surprising, seeing as how this is the electronic age.  It does change how spouses and significant others address the problem though.  Before virtually everyone had access to a computer, people met others at work, after work, at a gym – usually relatively close to home, unless they met someone on a business trip.

These days however, people can search for a clandestine meeting in the comfort of their own home.  There are sites that make it easy to find a stranger, or even a former girlfirend or boyfriend who may have moved away from the area years before.   

One thing that has not changed all that much are the signs to look for that someone is having an affair.  In this article written by Jayne Keedle for the Albany Times Union;

we see that people involved in affairs will often have changes in personality, dress, habits, etc.  There are also “electronic signs” to look for; a secret cell phone, going outside to take calls/read text messages, or staying up late at night on the computer (which is kept locked/coded).

One thing to be very aware of is that the other person very often has a “reasonable expectation of privacy”, which means that you may be breaking the law by “hacking into’ their computer to read e-mails.  Federal laws may apply and stiff penalties such as large fines and jail sentences may be imposed, so be very careful not to break the law.

If you suspect that something may be taking place, it is advisable to hire a professional investigator – one who knows and obeys the law.  An experienced investigator will review your case and advise you how to gather evidence from surveillance, social media, etc.
