Women more stressed about Facebook updates than men

By Super Admin

Sydney, Nov 29 (ANI): An Australian survey has found that women were more stressed out than men to keep their Facebook status updates interesting.

Sixty nine percent women of the 420 Australians interviewed said they felt the pressure to keep their status updated, as opposed to only 39 percent of men, reports News.com.au.

The Cenovis Chill Pill survey, conducted by Galaxy research, has suggested that the pressures associated with social media are a large contributor to high stress levels among its users.

While 63 percent believed social media was contributing to the stress levels, over one third (37 percent) felt under pressure to be in constant contact and 35 percent said there was an expectation to respond quickly to messages.

Over 13 percent felt stressed while trying to be witty in writing status updates on Facebook.

La Trobe University law student Nikkita Venville said she could relate to the survey's findings.

"There's a bit of pressure to have a unique status that people will laugh at and press the 'like' button," said the 24-year-old from Melbourne.

Venville said she felt 'out of loop' if she did not check or respond to messges on Facebook regularly.

She said that she was spending so much time on Facebook that she asked her sister to change her password so she could study for her exams. (ANI)
