I have been reading a study that was recently done on the affects that facebook has on your mental health. I could relate to this. So i thought i would share with you all. Facebook negatively affected my sense of self. It did this because i would go on there and see all these people who had brand new 30k cars, 5 bed houses, always out having loads of fun etc, and it would make me feel like they were happier than i was or inadequate. But these people probably have all these things on finance and worry to death about paying for them. It can increase your stress levels aswel. People can post negative things about you and this will stress you out. If you have low self asteem then your going to get mega stressed when someone says something about you on facebook. If you use your phone to access facebook, you might feel a constant impulse to check for updates. This will cause you anxiety.what if your phone dies and you cant use facebook until you get home. Oh no god forbid. Lol. You may get in trouble at work for being on facebook rather than doing your work. Just think how much anxiety you will get if your boss has you in the office. I dont want to rant for too long on this but hopefully you get the idea. If you have freinds on facebook who always appear to be having more fun than you, going on holiday more than you, in a good mood more than you? All this will make you anxious because you will feel inadequate. Maybe facebook isnt a good idea if you know it is affecting you in this way. If your geting anxious about what picture to post, or what comment to write, is it realy worth it. I feel that facebook is just about puting up the best image of yourself that you can for all to see so that they like you. And its like the most important thing in the world. But it really isnt. Anyway hope to get some responses on this
