Default Popular Facebook Users 'Feel More Stress'

Popularity comes with the price of higher stress according to a study.

Are you feeling stressed out? You must be popular on Facebook! If you are stressed out and don't use social networking sites, you probably just don't realize how popular you really are. Great, now I feel like a loser for being stree-free.

(please visit the source link for a direct quotation from the Dr.)...

But the claim has met skepticism from internet psychology experts, who question the methodology of the study.

A team at Edinburgh Napier University gathered online survey responses from 175 students about their feelings towards Facebook. Almost three quarters of respondents were women.

Dr Kathy Charles, who led the study, said: "We found it was actually those with the most contacts, those who had invested the most time in the site, who were the ones most likely to be stressed.

"It's like being a mini news channel about yourself. The more people you have the more you feel there is an audience there. You are almost a mini celebrity and the bigger the audience the more pressure you feel to produce something about yourself."

Some 12 per cent of respondents said Facebook makes them feel anxious. They had an average of 117 friends on the site, compared to an average of 75 friends for the rest of the students.
