Facebook at last count had attracted more than 2 billion users worldwide to its social media platform where they share photos, links, memories, life events and opinions.

But the amount of time they spend on the platform, even one that touts its users as friends, can have a negative effect on user’s wellbeing, according to a new, in-depth study.

We talk about what has been learned from people who give up Facebook today on Tech Tuesday on All Sides with Ann Fisher.
