Envy is rampant on Facebook

A recent study conducted by two German universities has found that envy is rampant on Facebook. According to the researchers, one in three people felt worse after visiting Facebook and more dissatisfied with their lives. The researchers also claim people who browse the website without contributing were affected the most.

"We were surprised by how many people have a negative experience from Facebook, with envy leaving them feeling lonely, frustrated or angry," a researcher Hanna Krasnova from the Institute of Information Systems at Humboldt University in Berlin told Reuters.

The two colleges that participated in the study are Humboldt University and Technical University in Darmstadt, Germany. Researchers participating in the study found that vacation photos were the biggest source of resentment with half of all so-called envy incidents triggered by vacation photos posted to Facebook.

Another significant source of envy according to the study is social interaction. The second most common source of envy was caused by people comparing how many birthday greetings they received to those of Facebook friends or how many likes and comments were made on their photos and posts.
