Finding leisure happens about once in a blue moon. Life became busy. Digital social experts blame social media behind not finding the minimum time for relaxing. From youth to 80-year-olds, immature to all the way grown, everyone is spending their time on social networking. Considering the popularity, Facebook is the most used social networking site. A Michigan University research showed the more you spend time on social networking the more frustrated you become. Your woes go up.
Facebook and Insomnia
A number of recent research and study show a greater rate of Facebook addiction may increase insomnia. Checking Facebook contents frequently to know what is going on around is completely ruining human sleeping patterns. Yet, Facebook can be the reason of rosters of problems. Eventually, the site actually knows when you sleep and wake up. This online platform is unbelievably powerful to collect your information. A Danish software developer Soren Louv- Jansen invented a tool which can track an array of personal things including users’ sleeping and work schedule.
People use social networking mediums, sometimes expose bulk of information online when they do not even know what other people can do or do with their personal information.
Facebook makes you feel isolated
Midst numerous social networkers, most of the people have grave faith that Facebook is an outstanding unique tool to use in daily life. As a matter of fact, it is hard to deny that Facebook is a handy option to communicate, have fun, and keep in contact with family, friends, and others. In contrast, among many purposes of social media, one of the most said goals is to bring people closer. But are sites like Facebook bringing us closer? The answer is no. Scientists say that though nowadays people have a large number virtual friends, but most of the time when they see the activities of those friends they feel dreadfully isolated.
Excessive social networking can cause frustration
People who spend more time on Facebook become more vindictive. Moreover, a research conducted last year showed that the increasingly acute vindictiveness leads one toward frustration. Consequently, it makes them dismal in terms of daily life. The finding of the research also included that tracking other people’s virtual lifestyle ultimately makes one distressed and dreary.
Another study proved that Facebook is undermining the level of concentration capability. The latest research tells the social site is lessening concentration and focusing skill. In fact, we are losing the ability to work for longer span time due to different social network mediums.
Affecting conjugal life negatively
The emergence of the online social networking is to establish the good relationship but it is the actually fragmenting relationship as psychologists claim. Instead of playing a positive role it is playing a negative role. People in their conjugal life even miss their delicate moments to check facebook notifications. Rather, it is playing a fruitful part to establish the extramarital relationship. Individuals experience void feelings when they do not find the consonance between real life and virtual life.
Limited aspects of thinking
Regarding Facebook algorithm, there is an old conflict amongst social-networking-site-critique. They criticize that when a user clicks on certain posts, Facebook keeps showing them posts belong to that specific type. Thusly, a person remains limited within his own thought. They subconsciously lose the diversity and openness in terms of thinking. To exemplify, if a Donald Trump supporter like posts which promote only Donald Trump and his philosophy, Facebook will show more contents or posts promote Trump. That supporter will barely see any complaints or faults against Trump which will make him or her more dogmatic, intolerant, irrational, and narrow-minded.
Wastage of Time
Some researchers came to a conclusion, Facebook actually gives you a feeling of remorse. When a Facebooker scrolls he consistently feel sad and once he logged out he feels sadder. The regret comes from a thought that he actually wasted his time remaining unproductive. As a matter of fact, when you just check what other hundreds of people are doing you are not adding any values to your life.
In 2014, two scientists from University of Innsbruck Christina Sagiaglou and Tobias Greitemeyer published a research. In that research they said, using a browser only to use Facebook is meaningless and a wastage of time.
