Facebook used to be a source of fun and happiness, why would 483 million people come every day? But if you find your news source to be more of a roll with each passing day, you're not alone.


In a study presented at the recent meeting of the Society of Personality and Social Psychology, researchers asked a sample group of Facebook users between the ages of 18 and 65 to read some of the status updates from friends. Then Facebook users rated their life much less satisfactory than the people who did not control its news service first.



Among the group to read the updates, the study revealed that having 354 friends on Facebook seems to be the turning point after which people were becoming less satisfied with their lives.


The reason: Much of the way we judge our success in life is based on how they stack up against our peers. "The problem is that Facebook gives us a limited view of the lives of our friends, and this view tends to be unrealistically positive," says study author Dilney Goncalves, Ph.D. professor of marketing at IE Business School in Madrid. The more friends you have, he adds, the more likely to spend the day with envy reading about a vacation paradise with someone, the new bride, or the promotion of employment. (Do you update their states at least twice a day? Then you can be a narcissist.


Goncalves should be removed from the blowhards most prolific and refining its news service. You can choose to read all the updates from a friend, a downgrade to a smaller portion of their updates, or see only what the Voodoo, Mark Zuckerberg, determined that their "most important" jobs.


Another option: Cut ties with those known to reduce the excess of his current best friends only. This means that your dentist, your first year of his room-mate, and former authoritarian everyone can get the axe.When you have reached a comfortable count , “learning about the success of your closest friends can actually make you happier”.says Gonçalves.
