Facebook Traps People In a Cycle Of Failure That Makes Them Keep Using It

August 9, 2017

Facebook traps users in a cycle of failure that makes them keep using it, but it takes a toll on their mental health.  

Researchers found even briefly looking at something related to Facebook like its logo or the news feed can be enough to give people great pleasure. 

And they say that pleasure keeps people logging on and triggers cravings when people aren't logged on.

Then, when people decide they want to leave Facebook, they miss out on that pleasure and go back to the social media site, which isn’t good for their mental health.  (Independent)
