Status Update of the Day: Judge Permits Woman to Divorce Husband Via Facebook

You still can’t actually dislike someone’s post on Facebook, but now you can use the social network to end your marriage.

A New York Supreme Court justice has ruled that a woman named Ellanora Baidoo can legally serve her husband a divorce summons through Facebook messenger.

She legally married Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku back in 2009, but because he wouldn’t go through with a traditional Ghanaian wedding ceremony, she now wants out of the relationship. They separated, and the only way she has been able to contact him is on the phone or through Facebook, so there has been no way to get him the required paperwork.

Until now. Her lawyer will be messaging him once a week for three weeks, or until he finally responds.

A 2013 study suggested that excessive Facebook usage is likely to cause relationship problems in the first place, which could lead to a breakup or divorce.

So it’s all now just an endless cycle of drama and heartbreak online.

And until your soon-to-be ex responds, it’s probably best to change your status to “It’s Complicated.”

Facebook has released its annual Year in Review lists for 2014, and they are pretty grim.

In case you needed a reminder of how terrible things were this year, here are the top 10 topics in the United States:

Ebola Virus Outbreak Ice Bucket Challenge Robin Williams Super Bowl Michael Brown & Ferguson World Cup Conflict in Gaza Midterm Elections Malaysia Airlines ISIS

Basically lots of horrible deaths and tragedies, but… Ice Bucket Challenge! Yay!

World-wide, the World Cup was the number 1 topic, with Ebola and the Brazil elections in spots 2 and 3.

Other notable winners: Beyonce topped the entertainers category, LeBron James was the most discussed athlete, "Game of Thrones" was the top TV show, "Frozen' the top movie, and Pharrell's "Happy" was the top song.

Facebook even made a top ten list just for the best Ice Bucket Challenge videos - a phenomenon that the company considers a milestone in terms of social sharing - topped by George W. Bush and Will Smith.

"I think the Ice Bucket Challenge was the first time a lot of people realized you could shoot a video and share it," said Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's chief operating officer.
