Abstract

In this phenomenological study, I investigated the impact of social networking site (SNS) usage on committed romantic relationships. The purpose of the study was to explore and better understand how adults experienced social media within their relationships by giving them a voice to tell their stories. The impact of SNSs can be defined as the beliefs, feelings, and lived experiences of individuals in romantic relationships as they explore the role SNS usage plays in the day-to-day lives of those romantic relationships.
