Back in August, Break Media released a tongue-in-cheek look at the way social media affects our relationships today.

While Elliot Yamin (American Idol) sings “I Just Texted To Say ‘I Love You’” (yes, to the tune of “I Just Called To Say I Love You”), real-life lovebirds Sarah Hyland (Modern Family) and Matt Prokop (High School Musical 3) show us the wedge social media (and technology in general, really) can drive between two people.

Check it out over at YouTube.

In the meantime, what role has social media played in YOUR relationships?

Do you text “I love you” more than you actually say it? Do you gaze at your siggie other’s Twitter profile picture more than you see him in person? Or have sites like Twitter and Facebook helped the two of you stay connected?

See more of Sarah Hyland when the Modern Family season premiere airs tonight (September 21, 2011) at 9 p.m. on ABC.
