People who use Facebook to make new friends just end up MORE lonely

Loners who use Facebook in a bid to make new friends only end up annoying the few pals they already have, new research claims.

Findings reveal that people suffering low self-esteem who sign up to Facebook often end up over-sharing personal information and moaning.

This presents a negative image of them which irritates existing friends and puts new ones off from getting close to them.

Canadian researchers say that despite Facebook being seen by many as an easy and fun way of making new friends, posting too many negative or self-pitying status updates can actually annoy online ‘friends.’
