Study: Facebook can cause depression
from Tech Crunch
Researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia have found that being envious of your Facebook friends can lead to depression, a finding that should give some of us pause. Based on a survey of 700 students, the study found that users who engage in "surveillance use" — "brows(ing) the website to see how their friends are doing compared with their own lives" — versus simply using the site to contact friends and family can experience symptoms of depression.
