t’s not smart to spend hours on social media.

You’re not thinking straight when bombarded with pics of your friends having fun on vacation.

This can make you feel excluded and prevent you from thinking intelligently.

So, use your brain, and take some time off.

That’s the gist of a new study of 194 people out of the University at Buffalo.

Facebook and other similar social media platforms were looked at.

Results showed lots of posts make us feel left out.

The feeling of social exclusion messes with our ability to think clearly.

The brain’s self-regulating function should take over at this point, but our brains turn to mush and we start to feel badly.

You’ll snap out of it once you realize social media is a highlight reel.
