2:10 Facebook Study - Sam Stronge 

Frequent Facebook use could be making us less happy with our bodies. That's one of the conclusions of a new study drawn from the views of thousands of Kiwis. The findings, which are the first of their kind in New Zealand, shed new light on how Facebooking Kiwis really feel about themselves. Auckland University PhD candidate Sam Stronge conducted the research.
