The People Who Threaten To Quit Social Media

Social media, as a whole internet-worth of studies and anecdotes have shown, is the mental health equivalent of bingeing on high fructose corn syrup enriched with trans fats.

Using Facebook and other social media platforms has been linked to everything from relationship jealousy when you send a friend request (or even accept one), to debilitating cases of FOMO (Fear of missing out).

It’s not surprising, then, that in a recent study by researchers at the University of Vienna it was found that Facebook users are having second thoughts about their online networking.

Published in Cyberpsychology, Behaviour and Social Networking, the study found that almost half of current Facebook users surveyed said they’d previously considered quitting the site.
