University of Manchester: Research exposes pitfalls of opening up on social media. “Opening up about your feelings on social media has an association with lower self-esteem, mood, paranoia and opinions about the self in comparison to others according to a new study. Dr Natalie Berry, a psychology researcher at The University of Manchester says venting our anger on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram is also linked to subsequent increases in paranoia, and reductions in self-esteem and mood.”
