But I agree with the researchers on this point: Actually getting out and doing something fun might be better than spending time on Facebook. (After all, if you don’t get out and experience life, how will you be able to create an enviable status update?)
Don’t worry, though. Even if you post that you have a pathetically boring subpar life, someone will “like” it!
