A new report from University of Michigan researchers found that scrolling through Facebook to see your news and browse other people’s profiles can have a negative impact on a person’s well-being.

Ethan Kross, U-M associate professor of psychology, and colleague Philippe Verduyn of the University of Leuven in Belgium, examined how passive versus active Facebook use affects users. The findings, which appear in the current issue of the Journal of Experimental Psychology elaborate on the researchers’ earlier work about how increased Facebook use, overall, leads to declines in people’s well-being.
