Final Note

Yes, Facebook is sucking your soul

Once again, social science has done what it so often does: Proven that which we already knew deep in our souls.

In this case, it’s that Facebook is bad for us.

In the June edition of the journal Computers in Human Behavior actual peer reviewed studies proved that thesis.

The first showed that the longer people are on Facebook, the worse the mood they were in afterward.

The second showed that that’s in part because being on Facebook leaves people with a feeling – and this is a quote – “of not having done anything meaningful.”

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
