Relationships, these days, are more public than ever. Social media allows your friends and family to find out details about your relationships that you would have never told them. Which got the team here at Lab42 wondering – how do people treat relationships nowadays? We surveyed 500 social network users aged 18+, and asked them some pretty personal relationship questions. Check out our results below.
