Stalking your ex on Facebook can permanently damage you: science
Psychologist Tara Marhall of Brunel University in London said, “Participants who remained Facebook friends with the ex-partner, relative to those who did not remain Facebook friends, reported less negative feelings, sexual desire, and longing for the former partner, but lower personal growth.”
Marshall analysed the data provided by 464 study participants that revealed that Facebook stalking was associated with greater current distress over the breakup, according to a study published recently in the journal of Cyberpsychology, Behaviour, and Social Networking. “Overall, these findings suggest that exposure to an ex-partner through Facebook may obstruct the process of healing and moving on from a past relationship,” she added.
Earlier studies have linked Facebook stalking to increased levels of anxiety.
