Social media is a great way to get information to a lot of people at one time, but some things should be said in person or personably rather than letting them find out in a facebook status or tweet. Especially when a marriage is dissolving. Specifically your marriage.

Page Six reports that Liam Hemsworth didn't know Miley Cyrus was leaving him until he found out about it on social media. Sources tell the outlet that Hemsworth was "blindsided" when Cyrus' reps said in an August 10 statement, "Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time...They have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers."

Insiders close to Hemsworth also say that he'd been trying to save the marriage, which had been crumbling for some time. In fact, another source says the 29-year-old Hemsworth and 26-year-old Cyrus had already been separated for months--and photographed without their wedding rings--before Cyrus publicly called things off.

Was it fair for him to find out this way if true? Probably not. But we don't know the details surrounding the split or if they were even talking at that point. I one time did (last year) let a guy I was seeing find out that I was moving here to Boise through Instagram.. oops. There just wasn't a good time to tell him!

Think about it- have you ever found something out through social media that definitely should have been told to you privately?! I know someone who found out a significant family member had passed through Facebook. Imagine the devastation.
