They say breaking up is hard to do, but when it happens over Facebook, for half the world to see? It can get awkward as well. Very, very awkward.
The social network, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this week, has made passive-aggressive over-sharing into an art form in the last decade.
Facebook has become such a part of the fabric of life that many of us can't subsist without it, and that includes posting personal relationship woes.
It's sad if you're the person who gets dumped via status update, but it can also be pretty entertaining when these things go viral ... which they always do.
