    Using Facebook elevates mood

     

    A recent study has claimed that people visit the social networking websites frequently due to several reasons and one among them is to enhance their positive emotions that they are experiencing and enjoying at that moment.

    The researchers who were involved in the study were from IULM University, Catholic University in Milan, Italy as well as from The Massachusetts University of Technology in Cambridge.

    They designed the mechanisms to measure the psychological and physical responses like brain activation, rate of breathing and also pupil dilation to assess the psychological state of the person and collected the results.

    The responses of a group of individuals who were either relaxing or doing some stressful task or simply being online on Facebook were collected.

    The results were analyzed and the study revealed that there is a different experience for the stress and relaxation exposure when compared to the response to the social network.
