Edinburgh family law firm Gibson Kerr says that social media channels such as facebook, twitter, bebo and myspace are becoming increasingly prevalent in divorce cases, as more people are using them to discover details about their partners' infidelity.
The trend is rising so much that some divorce firms in England believe that as many as one in five divorce cases have been influenced by social networking sites – often when people discover that their partner has used them to rekindle old romances or start a new affair.
