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. Social networks are a way to share, and the experience of successful sharing comes with a psychological and physiological rush that is often self-reinforcing.

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.

Whenever we have downtime, the Internet is an enticing, quick solution that immediately fills the gap. We get bored, look at Facebook or Twitter, and become more bored. Getting rid of Facebook wouldn’t change the fact that our attention is, more and more frequently, forgetting the path to proper, fulfilling engagement. And in that sense, Facebook isn’t the problem. It’s the symptom.

The researchers studied 736 school students and found that if one quietly stalks their friends on Facebook and afterward understand that their life doesn’t measure up to others, they begin to feel bad about themselves.

“If Facebook is used to see how well an acquaintance is doing financially or how glad an old friend is in his relationship — things that cause envy among users — use of the site can lead feelings of depressions,” said Margaret Duffy, professor at the University Of Missouri School Of Journalism.

Facebook users usually share every little thing about their lives — the dinner they had out last night, vacation at exotic locations, any grant/ felicitation they got, their children’s achievements and so on.

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

Facebook started in the United States as a way for some college kids to stay in touch when they had left campus – and it’s evolved since then to become one of the largest social networks in the world.

Facebook is a vast, sprawling network and you can make whatever you want of it. You sign up by putting some details, and preferably a photo of yourself, on the Facebook website. Then you’re ready to start posting a few updates.

Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will be shut down in 30 March 2020. Managing the site has become too stressful.

It was updated on 25-Aug-2015 and Creation Date on 29-mar-1997. Last time, Zuckerberg reportedly went on to explain that starting May 15th, users will no longer be able to access their Facebook accounts.  That gives users (and Facebook addicts) a year to adjust to live without Facebook.

“After 30 March 2020 the whole website shuts down. “So if you ever want to see your pictures again, I recommend you take them off the internet. You won’t be able to get them back after Facebook goes out of business.”Zuckerberg said the decision to shut down Facebook was difficult, but that he does not think people will be upset.

“I personally don’t think it’s a big deal,” he said in a private phone interview to a source close to a friend. “And to be honest, I think it’s for the better. Without Facebook, people will have to go outside and make real friends. That’s always a good thing.”
