Psychiatry and Facebook

A few data points about Facebook…

>500 million users
50% log on in a given day
36% of time on the internet
70% of Facebook Users outside the US

Average User:
130 “friends”
80 community pages, groups, events
90 pieces of content each month
> 55 minutes per day on Facebook

There are clearly ways in which Facebooking connects people and may be “mentally healthy” but could it at some point start to shift our world towards isolation and discontinuity??
Something to think about.
