Facebook Use and Well-Being
Does Facebook fulfill social needs or undermine them? Over a billion people on this globe have membership in Facebook–the largest social community of its kind on the planet. Researchers conducted a two week study in young people to determine how they feel moment-to-moment and how satisfied they are with their lives. The more people used Facebook during this period of time the lower their life satisfaction!
So real human interactions are a needed for real satisfaction in life. Balance in all things is very important–including social media involvement.
