Is there such a thing?  I don’t know.  I hear about people that are so glued to their Facebook that they need to be on and check it all the time.  Some might think that I’m on Facebook alot, but what does it look like to have Facebook anxiety?

Okay so maybe Facebook it self might not cause anxiety, but it can definitely amplify your anxiety.  If you have anxiety in your life, social media will make it stronger and more obvious.
Don’t blame Facebook for your anxiety.
