Grammar Question

Something I've been seeing in a lot of writing lately... using 'who' instead of 'whom'...

Is that new? Has that developed like that in the last years or decades?

Example: "...the girl who I’ve spent more time with than with my own family..."

Shouldn't that be. "...the girl *whom*..."?

Another one: "...there were people in this world who he could fight with..."

Again, I keep supplying "whom" instead of "who".

Anyone willing to clear that up for me? ^_____^;
