A Definitive Etiquette Guide for Couples on Social Media

Guys, we don’t need special apps for couples. Couples and singletons can coexist on the same social networks as long as we all live by a few ground rules. No, these special couples-only apps are not hypothetical. They are real. Being in a relationship on the Internet has gotten so difficult (and annoying for the rest of us) that people have spent time trying to create a whole closed off section of the Internet just for couples. Apps like Pair, as described via The New York Times’s Jenna Wortham, create a network of just two people: You and your significant other. While Wortham finds the app useful — “Something was thrilling about the secret little notes that Shaun, my temporary beau, and I sent to each other throughout the day” — do we really need to fence couples off into their own corner? We say no.
