Study: Too much Facebook can lead to depression

A new study shows that being on Facebook too much can lead to depression.



University of Houston researchers say Facebook gives people more opportunities to compare themselves with others who are seemingly leading better and more exciting lives.



"When you look at a photograph on Facebook of someone on vacation, you may get an image that it's the most perfect setting someone could be in," said social worker Robyn Berger-Gaston.



Experts also say that they are seeing more bullying among people online, which can cause severe depression.
