Would you initiate a break up on facebook and if so, how would you do it? Would you let go with a gentle apology or be curt and to the point? See what these youths would do.
RazorTV multimedia journalist Bridget Tan took to the streets, armed with questions for youths asked them for their experiences regarding break ups on facebook that involved themselves or their friends.
The youths were also quizzed on break up etiquette and shared stories on quarrels that escalated from facebook break ups or vice versa.
Should a couple break up via facebook or face-to-face? Youths were divided in their opinion with reasons like 'no respect for the other party' for those who broke up via the social media website or 'less emotional attachment'.
Youths then shared what they would type if they broke up with their other half via facebook on an imaginary account, Jin Bo Sim, which literally means 'really no heart' in the Hokkien dialect.
Watch the videos below to find out what the youths typed and which they felt was the harshest facebook break up message:
