Married people stalking their spouses online: report
Just a few days ago I wrote a blog post about parents stalking their kids on social networks. Well, the results of a new study suggest several people who are married are actually tracking their significant other using technology.
If you want to break it down by sex, women are the biggest snoops. The statistics show 40 per cent of females would check their spouse’s or partner’s email or call history, compared to 32 per cent of men.
If you’re just dating, the numbers are lower, but only slightly. The data suggests 35 per cent of women and 30 per cent of men would check in on their communication activities.
The end of the report calls on people to fear the tracking habits of those they know and love – and not the tracking activities of big corporations.
Sure – companies like Apple and Google embroiled in scandals about phones tracking their users seems like nothing compared to Mrs. Jones checking up to see who Mr. Jones was calling.
Do you monitor your significant other’s emails and phone history? Do you feel like your privacy is being invaded if they do that do you?
