Experts: Stay away from Facebook if you are feeling down

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The next time you're in a bad mood, don't go on Facebook to air your dirty laundry.

In fact, experts say stay away from the social media site completely.

Two behavioral researchers have confirmed: the longer you're on Facebook, the worse you feel.

The reason? Even more than other areas of the internet, Facebook makes you feel like you're wasting your life.

Compared to browsing the internet, Facebook is judged as less meaningful, less useful and more of a waste of time, which then leads to a decrease in mood.
