Do you feel sadder, or even depressed, when you see you Facebook friends’ pages?
European researchers said; you are not alone.

According to reports from the website www.family.lifegoesstrong.com, a study conducted by Humboldt
University in Berlin and Technical University in Darmstadt, Germany, researchers asked six hundred Facebook users how they felt while navigating through Facebook status updates.

More than a third reported feeling depressed and jealous.

The study attributes the Facebook “onset depression” when users look at their friends’ pictures or statuses, making them and feel that others have better jobs or more exciting lives.

But the study shows that most people only brag and post the good things on Facebook, while hiding the ugly and sad parts of their lives.

The study recommends that depressed Facebook users just stop going to the site.
