The researchers looked into how 'media multiplexity', the ability to communicate via several communications channels, affected relationships. According to the theory, the number of media channels used to communicate, the frequency with which they are used and the strength of relationship ties were linked together.

"Over 24,000 people in marital relationships took part in the new research, using 10 media channels. We found that those using more media tend to report no greater relationship satisfaction and some even reported decreasing satisfaction", lead researcher Bernie Hogan said.
