The More You Browse Facebook, The Lonelier You Probably Are According to New Study 3/7/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine conducted a study with 19-32 year olds to find out how long they use the top 11 most popular social websites including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Snapchat, among others. According to the Daily Caller, “The results showed that those that said they spend more than two hours a day on the social sites were twice as likely to perceive themselves as lonely than their peers who spent less than 30 minutes on social media each day. Participants who visited social media platforms 58 or more times per week were three times as likely to perceive themselves as socially isolated when compared to people who visited such platforms less than nine times per week.” Now this may come as a surprise to some, but it shouldn’t. It makes perfect sense to me. If you’re spending all your time browsing social media, you’re probably spending less time with friends and family, and you’re seeing all the wonderful things happening in everyone else’s life while you’re sitting at home browsing Facebook until 1 in the morning. So my advice is to log off Facebook and go out and live in the real world and your mindset and outlook on life will greatly improve and you’ll stop missing out on the real world. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
