Social Networking Websites Might Be to Blame for You Being Depressed
Excessive use of social networking websites, such as Facebook, can affect wellbeing and overall satisfaction with life according to a new research, conducted by the team of scientists from the University of Copenhagen.
The research shows that some people can suffer from so-called “Facebook envy” when looking at photos of people demonstrating their lives on Facebook and thinking that they have happier lives.
The study included 1,095 participants. During the study, half of them were asked to stop using Facebook and another half, the control group, was asked to continue using it as they usually do it.
The results of the research showed that the subjects who did not use the social networking website for a week reported being more satisfied with life. They also rated their well-being higher if compared to the control group.
