According to a recent study, the more different types of friends that you have on Facebook, the more likely you are to be experiencing a heightened level of stress and increased anxiety.

Apparently, the larger you range of friends, the more likely you are to offend someone- the higher your chances of offending someone, the more likely you are to be worried about possibly and unintentionally offending someone.

Ben Marder, a marketing fellow from the University of Edinburgh and the author of the report said, “Facebook used to be like a great party for all your friends where you can dance, drink and flirt. But now with your Mum, Dad and boss there the party becomes an anxious event full of potential social landmines.”

Solution? Try to keep your personal life and your professional life as separate as possible. Maybe create a second Facebook account for professional networking. Or give different networking sites a try- like LinkedIn.
