I think of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram more as vices than virtues--lately I've been trying to train myself to peruse and post to them only once a day, in an attempt to unplug, de-stress, and attend to more important things.

Researchers theorize this may be because women use these platforms to connect emotionally, while men--don't? Big surprise there. Does social media make your life feel less stressful?
