Using Facebook Can Lead to Envy, Serious Depression?

Constantly checking Facebook to see what your friends are doing could lead to some serious depression.

A recent study conducted by researchers at Nanyang Technological University, Bradley University and the University of Missouri Columbia found that heavy Facebook users can experience envy — which can ultimately lead to extreme sadness.

The researchers surveyed 736 college students and found that, basically, if you quietly stalk your friends on Facebook and then realize that your life doesn’t measure up to theirs, you feel bad about yourself. ...

Unprofitable, you ought not to speak of things which you know not of in reference to knowing my gender. That has never been confirmed on this forum...only speculated at. I prefer it that way as I do not know anyone on here personally. When I had initially posted on here,I didn't realize that posts were up for discussion/review among others.I was just responding to news items. Of course, I now know that this is somewhat of a community forum.
ok sc, I will honor your request.

Well, sister Jessica, I understand your pain and confusion in that situation. The first job I had at age 17, was fired because the married manager made advances toward me that I refused to accept. Back then, nothing could be done about it. Maybe, that's why I was so content to stay home and raise my four kids. Had it not been for God helping me throughout my life and in my marriage, helping us to just survive things probably would have turned out much differently.

Sister Delores,

It is such a shame and a poor witness when sexually immoral relationships start in the church. I was attending one Church years ago and though it was known that I am married, one man in the Church was trying to set me up with a single man in the Church - I ended up having a nervous break-down (not being able to talk; walking around in a daze) that day (at the Church picnic) because I felt so afraid and vulnerable.

I am so sorry to learn that you have suffered so much because of the sinful desires of the men in your life. It absolutely broke my heart when I read your testimony! God bless, hope, and peace to you!

Thanks Unprofitable Servant for that, I now have it safely bookmarked, and will listen after I've played the one Michael linked to about the Bible.

sc, just fyi, on your post to me on 3/4/2015 4:32 pm you said "SF stated that he was aware of such as well"

I don't think she was offended, she just wanted you to know that she, like you, is a dear sister in the Lord.

Unprofitable,a person can know of a subject matter if they directly know others who are familiar with it.
SF,I don't think that I had implied that you were either gender in my comment.
Dolores,I wasn't suggesting that facebook was the only medium by which people have affairs just that it is very conducive to it.
I would expect that the rate of infidelity would be higher in places that are lax on/compromise in the area of modesty.For instance, a church which doesn't address the immodest clothing of its entertainers/singers etc. or congregation will probably have a higher rate of incidents as far as sexual sins. Compromise begets compromise. Carnality breeds carnality.

If you are in the mood for an affair, you can find it can happen even in church. Oh yes, especially if you sing in the choir. A few years back a couple was having an affair. Both were married but not to each other. At my husband's place of business there was an affair going on between the dispatcher and District Manager at his office. Dispatcher was at their main office but somehow they found each other and soon everybody knew about it, even his wife who also worked at her husband's office as dispatcher. My dad somehow, somewhere found lots of women to have affairs with and finally ran off with one. My first husband found lots of women to have affairs with and got a divorce on adultry and named the woman that kept harrassing me. And not one person was on facebook. For those that are the envious type and get depressed over things like that then I would very much advise them to not go there. For me and other christian friends that are happy and love the Lord we enjoy reading posts that encourage. We weep when they have problems. One of my friends from the town we moved from lost her daughter yrs.ago and just recently lost her husband. We see pictures of each other and rejoice when someone has a new grand baby. I guess you can find bad or good in just about anything.

Hi sister,
Was glad to see your post.
Have been remembering you in prayer.
Pastor Silversides was really spot on with his sermon...may we all take heed.
~Peace and Grace in the Lord Jesus Christ~
Hi Dorcas, God bless ~ grace ~ hope - and peace be with you! Thank you for your prayers, as I live in weakness (physically, mentally, and spiritually) and am always needing God to strengthen me. I agree, I found the pastor Silversides' sermon also helpful to encourage the believer in godly conversation in any arena. With how much I fumble, this teaches me I am not sufficient without God and that I always have room to grow in Him. May we all take heed indeed, amen!

Thank you for the insight, SF, and may God be with you and your loves ones always: in times of need and in times of abundances. Peace, hope, and God bless!

Unprofitable Servant - greetings in Jesus Mighty Name - I can understand Facebook gathering data for market-research and providing data to corporations to understand their brand positioning. Yet to deliberately manipulate the emotions of users - depriving them of encouraging messages - when they have not informed the subjects, and do not have knowledge of their medical/mental health history when it could have serious effects the users' well-being is irresponsible.
...

maybe somebody will sue them and stop such unethical practices.

Hope you are doing ok, thanks for the great opening statement, greetings in Jesus Mighty name, He is truly all powerful.

Isaiah 41:10

Fear not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yea, I will help you; yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.

Deuteronomy 33

26There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.

27The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.

Hey Jessica, hope you are doing ok. I remember that, and it seems like in those ubiquitous terms of agreements that nobody reads they probably obtained permission to do that. Other than occasional comments, like advising will pray for request mentioned, I rarely post and so probably wouldn't be one of their unwilling subjects. I would question the scruples of such an experiment but people need to realize that is part of what they can expect and the less personal info you put on these sites the better.

I agree with you that it is also irresponsible to post vacation photos and letting people know that your house is vacant. People also in my experience share way too much personal information about their children's activities - making them possible targets.

Again,Unprofitable,I did qualify by using "for the most part". And it is always advisable to be careful with ones info even on secure sites.
Where's the hearsay?
And you may be the exception but there are many and it has been brought out ,publicly, that many inappropriate relationships begin on facebook.
..glad that isn't part of your "scene".
And,of course,inappropriate affairs/relationships can happen other ways. Facebook just seems to be very conducive for it as SF stated that he was aware of such as well.
I might be careful to guard info about children as well. Too many predators.

I have read where people got their houses robbed because they posted their vacation pictures on their account while they were on a vacation. (not wise) Thanks for bringing those up.

sc, you still should avoid making broad generalizations on something you don't know anything about. In courts they call that hearsay and it is not admissible evidence. People get involved in affairs at work and sadly in churches. Does that mean we should not go to work or church?

Just my experience in online banking, I have been doing it for years and have not encountered any problems. I even use my phone (wifi turned off) to bank. It is not for everybody, but just relating my experience with it.
