The compulsive Instagram habit that spells bad news for your relationship

Hands up if you've ever uploaded a filtered-to-perfection selfie of your Saturday night look to Instagram? Us too.

Unfortunately, a new study conducted by researchers at the Florida State University suggests that sharing snaps of ourselves on Instagram might actually have a negative impact on our romantic relationships.


420 Instagram users aged between 18 and 26 years old took part in the study, which required them to fill in a questionnaire relating to their selfie habits and their relationships.

The results showed that those with higher body image satisfaction were likely to post more selfies, which in turn led to negative outcomes in their romantic relationships.

So it might be time to stop taking a leaf out of the A-listers book and give the selfies a rest.
