Mental Illness shown in Facebook? Come on!!!

A new study suggests a person's facebook profile may reveal signs of mental illness that may not be apparent in a session with a psychiatrist. For the study, researchers had 200-college students fill out questionnaires designed to evaluate their levels of extroversion, paranoia, enjoyment of social interactions and endorsement of strange beliefs. The students were then asked to log onto Facebook, and told they had the option of blacking-out certain parts of their profile before some of it was printed out for the researchers to examine. Researchers found that people who disliked social interactions in real-life usually had fewer Facebook friends and generally communicated on the social network less. They also found that students who took the option of blacking-out certain parts of their profiles were more likely to hold odd beliefs and exhibited higher levels of paranoia. (Fox News)
