Open Letter to Amazon: Don't make your e-mails look like phishing attempts

Dear Amazon,

Facebook Use Predicts Declines in Subjective Well-Being in Young Adults

"We text-messaged people five times per day for two-weeks to examine how Facebook use influences the two components of subjective well-being: how people feel moment-to-moment and how satisfied they are with their lives. Our results indicate that Facebook use predicts negative shifts on both of these variables over time. The more people used Facebook at one time point, the worse they felt the next time we text-messaged them; the more they used Facebook over two-weeks, the more their life satisfaction levels declined over time."
