A new study finds that Facebook pages can trigger jealousy and suspicion among individuals in relationships.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – Activities on Facebook can reportedly lead to jealousy and suspicion for people in romantic relationships. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), a new study has found that the social networking site has triggered jealousy in some college students who view pictures and postings on the pages of their significant other.
Amy Muise, a doctoral candidate at the University of Guelph’s psychology department, and study leader is quoted by the AP as stating, “It seems like Facebook is creating jealousy even where there was not jealousy to begin with… Part of the issue with information on Facebook is that it lacks certain context… so there could be things posted on your partner’s wall that you really don’t know what it means.”
More information about the study may be found in the recent publication of the CyberPsychology & Behavior journal.
