This article from the Chicago Tribune points to a recent study that discovered that Facebook stirs up a lot of bad mojo for a large chunk of people that visit the site.

The study suggests that over a third of people that visit Facebook leave the site feeling “lonely, frustrated, or angry” and the site feeds large levels of envy.

The researchers found that 1 in 3 people felt worse after visiting the site and more dissatisfied with their lives, while people who browsed without contributing were affected the most.

What impact do you think Facebook has on the people that attend your church?
