Social media hurts your confidence and self-esteem.
Hanna Krasnova of the Institute of Information Systems at Humboldt-Universität in Berlin led a series of studies that analyzed the role of Facebook on certain human emotions. The studies found that following other people on Facebook and monitoring their posts leads to feelings of envy among a significant percentage of users. Even worse is that over a long period of time, this envy leads to “frustration and exhaustion,” which damaged the subjects’ overall satisfaction with their lives.
