A new study has proved that excessive uses of Facebook may cause depression, and the more someone uses it, the more depressed he or she becomes.

Facebook could even cause problems in relationships, by increasing feelings of jealousy. Facebook had the opposite effect, lowering their feelings of connection and increasing their sense of loneliness. When the subjects were actively engaged with Facebook, their physiological response measured a significant uptick in happiness. When they were passively browsing, however, the positive effect disappeared.

The people who don’t have similar things to share may feel envious or pitiful for not having similar privileges in life, researchers said.
