Do you feel personally fulfilled after you turn the computer off following a session on facebook? Or do you ‘brood’ over thoughts and ideas about your next newsfeed entry?
Reach out to reality. Put facebook in perspective.
YOU’LL FEEL BETTER.
Connecting online with friends and family seems like a fun pastime that would enrich your life, but several studies report otherwise. Researchers at the University of Michigan found that the more time people spend on Facebook, the higher their chance of depression.
Another study, this one out of Utah Valley University, found that using Facebook can cause you to feel dissatisfied with your life. Researchers found “those who have used Facebook longer agreed more that others were happier, and agreed less that life is fair.”
Leave Facebook and you won’t compare your life with a snapshot of someone else’s.
