Using Facebook Could Help You Live Longer

Being on Facebook this political season may be giving you a headache, but believe it or not, the social media site could help you live longer in the long run. A new study suggests that being active on social media may actually increase your life expectancy.

The observational study looked at 12 million California Facebook users over a six-month period, studying their health records from the California Department of public health. All subjects were born between 1945 and 1989, with comparisons made of people with similar ages and genders. What researchers discovered was that Facebook users were 12% less likely to die than those who didn’t use the site at all, but it does depend on how the site was used.

Folks who showed a high level of offline social activity on their page, you know, like posting pictures out with friends or spending the day with family, were more likely to live longer than those who limited their interactions to making comments or writing posts. Also, those with social networks in the top 50 to 30% tended to live longer than those with friends in the 10% range. Interestingly, those who accept a lot of friend requests tend to live the longest, although there’s data to suggest how long those who initiate the most relationships live.

But before you start spending more time on Facebook in the hopes it will make you live longer, it’s important to note that the study is only observational and doesn’t prove that Facebook is the reason people are living longer.
