Remaining Facebook friends with an ex-lover or even just following their activities online can disrupt a person's ability to heal emotionally and move on in life, a new study has claimed.



In the study, researcher Tara C Marshall of Brunel University in England asked 464 participants to evaluate their Facebook usage and emotional recovery following the breakup of a romantic relationship.

The study assessed the effects of continued Facebook contact with an ex-partner and of Facebook surveillance, in which there is no actual online contact, but one individual monitors the Facebook page and postings of another.
