    4. Mental Distress

    When people interact with their friends on Facebook, they often get the sense that their friends have better, more fulfilling lives than they do, which can lead to stress and depression. Many people make their lives look more glamorous or enriching on Facebook, so there is a constant comparison to what may not even be real. Another source of mental anguish is the steady parade of news stories describing tragic events both locally and globally. Such extended exposure to unpleasant occurrences can have a detrimental effect on the well-being of the average Facebook user.

      It would not too wrong to say that the Internet has destroyed young lives. I have a number of relatives who did poorly in their studies, because they are so focused on Youtube, Facebook, They can hardly concentrate 15 -20 minutes on a Maths book and they flit to the Internet-movies, Youtube, celebrity gossip. If parents don’t control and guide from young, they are gone, lives wasted.

      In this new society that we’ve all agreed to be a part of, your Facebook
      page is an extension of yourself. For this reason, it’s not a good idea
      to post anything there that you wouldn’t normally say it will really get you into trouble.

      So they are saying that the news from any news source, including CNN, is not good to listen to. Most of what I see on CNN online is bad news.
