Facebook Users May Live Longer, a New Study Finds
A new study of 12 million Facebook users finds that using Facebook associated with a longer life when Facebook is used for building on and keeping up with a real-world social network. The study was executed by a team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego, and was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Researchers say that nearly 12 percent are less likely to die within a given year compared to people who do not use social media. They suggest that this could have to do with social or economic differences in the user and non-user groups.
A study author James Folwer says: "We can't say using Facebook is good for you, but I think the study provides evidence that it's probably not bad for you."
