With all the rush of everyday life, it can be difficult for a couple to find the time to talk on the phone or even text. But there's one easy way to stay in contact during even the busiest of times: trading memes.

But the internet has entered our romantic lives for more than meme sharing. According to a 2019 survey of 4,860 Americans, social media plays a much bigger role.
Roughly eight-in-ten social media users (81%) report that they at least sometimes see others posting about their relationships, including 46% who say this happens often, but few say that these posts affect how they feel about their own love.
Social media has become a place where some users discuss relationships and investigate old ones. Roughly half of its users (53%) say they have used these platforms to check up on someone they used to date or be in a relationship with, while 28% say they have used social media to share or discuss things about their relationship or dating life.
For adult users under the age of 30, those shares who have used social media to check up on a former partner (70%) or posted about their own love life (48%) are even bigger.
It can even be a source of annoyance and conflict for some couples. Among those whose partner uses social media, 23% say they have felt jealous or unsure of their relationship because of the way their current partner interacts with others on these sites, and this share rises to 34% among those ages 18 to 29.
Still, some people view these platforms as an important venue for showing love and affection. This is especially true for younger couples: 48% of 18- to 29-year-old social media users say it is very or somewhat important for them to show how much they care about their significant other.
