Too Much Facebook-ing Might Mean You Have Social Anxiety Disorder!

…time to stop #LivingForLikes

It's a scary new development, but apparently a constant need to post your life's happenings on Facebook means you might, indeed, have SAD.

"But the link between social anxiety and an excessive use of Facebook was only significant for users who had medium-to-high-levels of need for social assurance—defined as a strong desire to seek companionship and interact with others," lead researcher Roselyn Lee-Won of Ohio State University, Columbus told the media.

It turns out that people with social anxiety have a tendency to prefer the non-confrontational Facebook universe to the real one, and if your use of this social network borders on a bit too much, it could be a sign that you might have SAD as well.

(Just in case, though, it might be time for a little #ThrowbackThoroughcheck to make sure all's clear).
