Frequent Facebook Use Might Prolong Life, Study Finds
Another reason has been given to people who constantly use Facebook to continue using the app. A new study suggests that the constant use or state of being active on Facebook is likely to improve your chances of having a longer life. This association was found to be responsible for keeping and enhancing real-world types of friendships.
According to the authors of the research, they highly emphasize that their study was purely based on observations and hasn't been scientifically proven that using Facebook can actually prolong one's life. On the other hand, it was also found that the health benefits of having a proactive level of social connectedness are extended to those on the internet.
In one of their press release statements, William Hobbs, first author who worked on the study as a UC San Diego doctoral student in political science and is now a postdoctoral fellow at Northeastern University, CBS News reports that online interaction is likely considered as healthy when the activities online is as moderate as it complements offline.
Thus, he concludes that a negative implication is only being manifested when a huge amount of time is spent online with a little evidence of being connected to people which happen in rare cases. Furthermore, according to The Columbian, Hobbs has also claimed that for the past few decades, they already knew that the social networks, especially in terms of social integration, can be associated with a prolonged life.
While doing the research, experts have revealed that they have actually found an understandable association between the number of friend requests they accepted and how long these people have lived. However, the researchers of the study note that a lot of factors could be at play.
They were able to control variants such as age, gender and socioeconomic status but they have also acknowledged the fact that the latter is difficult to take into account due to the lack of information about the individual users that are being studied.
