(FOX NEWS) -Social media has the power to bring people together or rip them apart but couples are trying to protect themselves with a new type of agreement made for the 21st century. Some are adding what's called a "social media clause" to their prenup agreements.

Here's how some of them work because each contract can be different. When couples sign a social media clause, each party can agree not to post, tweet, or share anything that has to do with social media. This can include nude pictures, embarrassing or negative posts, and tracking the other person’s posts online.

Some couples are agreeing to pay each other money if they break their social media contract with each other. For example, an attorney said a client agreed to pay as much as $50,000 per post if they broke the agreement.
