This makes the Facebook world, where everyone’s showing their best side, seem even more distortedly bright by contrast, so we wanted to see what happened when users took a break.” Many participants in the study are Facebook addicted. “When I woke up, even before getting out of bed, I’d open Facebook on my phone just to check if something exciting or important had happened during the night. I worried I’d end up on Facebook just out of habit,”said one of them. The same perso, a woman, declared after seven days: “After a few days, I noticed my to-do list was getting done faster than normal as I spent my time more productively. I also felt a sort of calmness from not being confronted by Facebook all the time.” Some people agreed to extend “the life without Facebook” for a longer time, up one year. The researchers are excited to verify their conclusion during a such period.
