Facebook is linked to unhappiness

  • Researchers say Facebook is linked to unhappiness in society. The more time people spend on Facebook, the more unhappy they feel. 

    On the other hand, those that meet their friends in person or talk to them on the phone experience greater levels of happiness. 

    Although, the social networking site is supposed to promote social connection, all it does is undermine it. 

    The study used the "experience sampling" technique and asked the volunteers about their level of life satisfaction at the end as well as start of the study. 

    Dr John Jonides of University of Michigan said these results are extremely important as they show the effects that social networking have on the lives of people.
