this should come as no surprise

According to recent research from the University of Michigan, Facebook is linked with unhappiness.

The number one social networking site is strongly associated with declines in  well-being, psychologists claim.

Scientists found the more time people spent on Facebook over a two-week  period, the worse they subsequently felt.

In contrast, talking to friends on the phone or meeting them in person led to  greater levels of happiness.

An article in The Atlantic asks is it is actually making users lonely, or worse.
