According to a new study from Scotland, having too many friends on Facebook can stress you out.  More friends equals more stress because of the anxiety it can cause to keep up with everyone.  Some people  labor over unfriending someone.  Then there are the people that try to come up with good stuff to post, funny stuff that their friends will like and post comments.  It really sucks when you post something that seemed super witty at the time but no one commented on it.

The study’s lead researcher Kathy Charles says:  “It’s like being a mini news channel about yourself. The more people you have the more you feel there is an audience there.”  She goes on to say, “You are almost a mini celebrity and the bigger the audience, the more pressure you feel to produce something about yourself.”
