Check these out, too...
So go ahead, girlies, get connected! While social media doesn’t offer a cure for chronic depression or other serious problems, it can make you feel temporarily more connected to the world around you—perfect for when your bestie moves halfway across the country…or, you know, you’ve been stuck inside all day with the flu.
Do you feel better (or worse) when you use Facebook? Tell us in the comments!

POSTED IN dealing with depression, self-esteem,
Facebook mostly has more of a negative effect than a positive effect... Unless you use it correctly and try to not use it too much...

Why do some people's comments have names in blue right next to them?

I'll bet that study is true. That's one of the reasons I wish I had a FB. My parents are totally against social networking sites tho after something that happened to my cousin on FB (long storyy). But anyway sometimes I don't mind because although I don't have one I have witnessed Facebook and Twitter making people MORE stressed because you are expected to check them all the time and there's constantly SO much drama. It's like there's ENOUGH drama going on at school I don't really need to bring all of that and everyone from school home with me. The people I really care about and are friends I text..so it's all good

I like looking at the hot guys on FB. Its kind of nice to get to know some of them and become friends with them. They seem to open up more than guys do in person, plus there is distance because its an online thing.

Better! I don't have FB, but I use Instagram and it makes me feel more connected to my friends that I don't see as often. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

I can only imagine how tough things are for you. Because we wish you only the best, it’s extremely important that you speak to a trusted adult, such as a family member, doctor, guidance counselor, teacher, etc.

When no one likes me status I always feel dumb, like no one cares or anything. That's why I don't normally post, unless it's to wish someone a happy birthday or to wish all of our sports teams good luck. I prefer Tumblr and Instagram.

I like facebook because theres a whole page for you to be you and say what you want to say without anyone talking over you.

It can make you feel good or not so good, but I think most of the time it makes you feel better. I agree that some things we see when it comes to friends, parties, guys and comments can make a feel worse. And my mom just doesnt understand how connected we have to be, she complains a lot but my friends are the same way.
And being connected has its benefits, like its nice to get comments and pictures from hot guys we know.
by fashionqn on 1/17/2013 3:45:57 PM
I don't exactly feel better or worse. I mean I use Instagram and it actually kinda makes me sad. A lot of people post pictures of people at parties I wasn't invited too and people making out and stuff or of course there will be pictures of girls with a bunch of comments from boys. When I post selfies my besties say something to me which makes me feel good, but I don't understand the difference really. Instagram makes me feel kinda worse actually In other ways too.
by YouCanCallMeCat on 1/17/2013 3:36:53 PM
worse. people are mean on facebook and can say whatever they want about you, and you dont even get the message to know they are until someone tells you, and facebook just lets you say whatever u want. u can say something about students, teachers, friends. or whoever and people laugh and like mean comments. i deleted facebook because it just made me feel crappy about myself all the lies people were saying about me
