It's fine to surreptitiously scroll through your partner's Twitter/Instagram/Facebook/Tumblr and so on. But a new study found in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking, claims it's the "preoccupied" and "fearful" types are more likely to spy on their partners.
The study surveyed 328 university students (145 male and 183 female Facebook users, from ages 18-48, predominately caucasian), so take these results with a grain of salt.
[The survey] examined two potential explanatory variables for interpersonal electronic surveillance (IES) of romantic partners: attachment style and relational uncertainty.
