If Facebook were a country, it would be the third largest in the world (as of spring 2011). People have hundreds of friends yet often feel lonelier than ever. What are the good and bad social impacts and potential of social networks?\"\n\nSometimes, I'll admit it, I do get a little sad if someone doesn't like my super witty awesome Facebook status or retweet my hilarious tweet. Who doesn't, though? It's a lot like wearing a cool new shirt to school for the first time, and nobody compliments you on it. It causes slight anxiety, and makes you start to ask yourself, \"Do people not like me? What am I doing wrong here?\". \n\nA recent study in the UK found that 51% of people believe that social networks like Facebook and Twitter have made a negative impact on their life, and two thirds of the people surveyed said they found it hard to relax and sleep after browsing online social mediums. \n\nAs well, in the 1990's, a study shown that the more a person used the internet, the more lonely they were--it was called the 'Internet Paradox'. It's a pretty obvious statistic though, because it's not like you browse the internet with a friend right next to you very often. Still, it is proving that Facebook and the like are actually making us more lonely. \n\nHowever, it's hard to not find the whole situation ironic and maybe even a little bit funny, that online websites made to make us socialize more with friends and others around the world, are actually making us lonelier.","content_type":"","title":"","shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":997169,"object_id":"nickvarvis1366731277","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/9383609/Facebook-and-Twitter-feed-anxiety-study-finds.html\n\nhttp://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2012/05/is-facebook-making-us-lonely/308930/","content_type":"","title":"","shrink":null}],"theme":{"createdAt":"2016-04-22T04:54:07.000Z","updatedAt":"2016-12-28T10:33:06.000Z","logoImages":[""],"charts":{"wordcloud":{"labels":{"fontWeight":"700","fontFamily":"Arial"}},"treemap":{"labels":{"value":{"fontFamily":"PT
