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.
