          Abstract

          Modern technology provides great access to information. With the development of communications technologies, the nature of information changed from retrieving simple documents to accessing visual-based social media, digital platforms, video-streaming, and music. In that process, search engines and social media platforms like Google, Facebook, Twitter and so on, are used to locate information and to connect with other people, and businesses. It is a platform to learn more about people we associate with and expose aspects of our lives that were previously hidden such as dates, family gatherings, nights out and so on. It is also affecting our relationships with friends and family members. This study aims to investigate the effect of social media and technological tools on the relationship between couples and among family members in Lebanon. We examine whether people are becoming more interested in technology than in people around them and consequently are losing real-life connection. The study is based on the time spent on social media, its effect on the relationship, and how much it contributes to marital problems, emotional disrespect, cheating, breakup, divorce, and others.
