Study: The more women post on Facebook, the lonelier they are

A study from Charles Sturt University in New South Wales, Australia, paints an extremely sad picture of women who reveal themselves on Facebook.

Titled “Self-disclosure on Facebook among female users and its relationship to feelings of loneliness,” the study offers highlights that are painful for the human social condition.

In examining the Facebook postings of 616 women, the researchers concluded that the more information about themselves they put out there, the lonelier they actually were.

In a twist that might make many Hollywood writers pen “Bridget Jones’s Facebook Nightmare,” the lonelier women disclosed more about their relationship status, as well as their address and their literary and musical tastes.

And “disclosed” means not just to friends, but to the whole world.
