The tirade against Facebook following the Cambridge Analytica data fiasco drove many into deleting their social media account or at least, prompted fanatic users to consider a detox to protect their data privacy. The scandal sparked an overdue debate whether Facebook is a friend or is it worth of boos.

A study by researchers at the University of Queensland concludes that people show an improvement in psychological stress after quitting Facebook but are gripped by a feeling of vacuum, left unsatisfied with their life, notes Futurism.

The mixed results can be linked to the fact that Facebook users are unaware of the physical benefits and thus don’t reap the mental benefits, reports
