每日跟讀#559: Leaving Facebook makes people happier but less informed

A new study has found that leaving Facebook may be good for your emotional wellbeing, but you could be less informed about current events.

一項新研究發現,離開臉書可能有利於你的情緒幸福感,但你可能會變得較不了解當前事件。

A new report from researchers at New York University and Stanford University looked at what happened to people who deactivated their accounts. To track social media’s effects, the researchers recruited 2,844 Facebook users and paid them $102 to turn-off their accounts for four weeks.

紐約大學與史丹福大學研究人員的一項新報告,檢視停用臉書帳號的人會變得怎麼樣。為了追蹤社群媒體的影響,研究人員招募2844名臉書用戶,並支付102美元要求他們關掉帳號4週。

The study found that temporarily quitting Facebook led to increased subjective wellbeing, less political drama and attention span agitation, and increased time spent with friends and family. On the other hand, it also led to a decrease in awareness of current events.

研究發現,暫時戒掉臉書導致主觀幸福感增加,減少政治是非及注意力不安,增進與親人和朋友的相處時間。另一方面,這也造成對當前活動的關注減少。

Psychologists have argued for years that the use of Facebook and other social media is linked to mental distress, especially in adolescents. Others have likened habitual Facebook use to a mental disorder.

心理學家多年來一直主張,使用臉書及其他社群媒體與精神痛苦有關,尤其是青少年。其他人則將習慣性使用臉書視為精神障礙。
