No two people should compare each others life, each persons life is different and for good reason.

Facebook certainly doesn't help if you're depressed, since most people use it to spy on others. And even if people are having a crap time, they still post photos and status updates basically saying "look at me and how wonderful my life is". So it will always appear they are having a better time than you.

I think it would make more sense though to say facebook use is linked with stupidity.

I should just delete my facebook account. I don't use it often. The only time that I do is when I message my friends. However, I'm hesitant to do delete because I feel like I will be forgotten.

Isolation leads to depression. Facebook is linked to isolation. Bytes is not the same as human contact. More people isolate themselves now that they are granted the illusion of being in touch with other people. I just wanted to point out how they make it sound like Facebook is the cause for depression. It isn't. Facebook is just a medium.

I have a profile, but its just because of family.

Eh, I have social media accounts but don't use them. Forums, steam, imageboards, and Skype are more my thing.

I got rid of my Facebook 10 months ago, and my outlook has improved SO MUCH. I'm a lot happier and less self-critical.

When your techno parents aren't satisfying your needs, you tend to get depressed.

Get the fuck off Facebook, people. It is destroying lives just to keep one man super rich.

I can confirm.
I get even more depressed after staring at people's profiles for 5 minutes.
