Facebook Friends May Lead to Stress

A recently posted study by University of Edinburgh Business School says that the more groups of people in someone's Facebook friends, the more stress it can add. Adding employers or parents can raise anxiety for people who show off behavior that other might disapprove of such as swearing, recklessness, drinking and smoking.

"Facebook used to be like a great party for all your friends where you can dance, drink and flirt,” said Ben Marder, author of the report and early career fellow in marketing at the Business School. “But now with your Mum, Dad and boss there the party becomes an anxious event full of potential social landmines."
