According to research, spending a lot of time on social media sites does not always cause happiness to the person. Many people have signed in the social media sites. For instance, Facebook has more than 250 million photos uploaded every day and many videos of daily events of individuals who are subscribers to the social site (Bless, Kim, Rawashdeh, & Saddik 1).

For instance, as individuals go through the uploaded materials, they get to find their former classmates and friends with partners, good jobs, and good homes. The information can make one feel jealous especially if the individual has not achieved any of the statuses in the posted material. Sometimes people may find that they are ahead of the others and feel happy that they have achieved more than their friends. Other times individuals can get encouraged to work harder to reach the same status their friends are, which is a great feeling.
