- University of Toledo Study Shows Facebook Use May Be Harmful: Comparing yourself to other people on Facebook may be bad for your mental health, according to a study conducted in the UT Psychology department and published in Psychology of Popular Media Culture (October 2014). Graduate students Erin Vogel and Lindsay Roberts, Associate Professor Dr. Jason Rose, and former UT honors student Katheryn Eckles conducted two studies to examine how people compare themselves to others on Facebook and how those comparisons affect them. Results showed that people feel worse about themselves after looking at others’ Facebook profiles, and frequent Facebook users have lower self-esteem in general.
