#1 Facebook reduces our self esteem
On Facebook, we get to see the profiles of people who are superior to us money wise, job wise etc. Now, you can’t blame the ‘superiors’. They have the right to join Facebook and they are free to flaunt their designer suits and new SUV! But when we see them and their lifestyle, a feeling of inferiority develops in our mind and actions. This results in reduced self esteem!
Many times it happens that our Facebook friends uploads the photo of their new car, home, holidays abroad etc. Again, you can’t stop them from posting and uploading such stuff. Studies show that many people get jealous when they see such posts and pics uploaded by their friends.
