It takes just a few seconds, but changing your relationship status on Facebook says a lot and can have damaging effects.

Before you change your Facebook relationship status, ask yourself a few questions.
Have you officially ended the relationship in private? What are your motives? Do you already plan on changing it back within a few days?
