STUDY: FACEBOOK Increasing Social Anxiety!
Researchers studied how online interaction affects face-to-face meetings
They fitted 26 students with electrodes to measure physiological arousal
Students were shown Facebook photos of a subject before meeting them
During face-to-face meetings, participants suffered an increase in arousal
Researchers linked this arousal to an increase in social anxiety
They believe viewing photos leads people to rate themselves against that person, and this can increase anxiety.....
