A new study published in the journal Information, Communication & Society, explored the connections between our social media usage and our emotions. University of Michigan researchers conducted the study by asking 154 students to answer a survey about their social interactions six times a day. The winner in the happiness department was SnapChat, whom users stated provided the most happy feels after each interaction. It actually makes a ton of sense why we feel happy after SnapChat: it doesn't have a lot of the same happiness-sucking issues that other social networks share. On Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, you have a feed of information that you have to scroll through, which sometimes means landing upon something that gets you down. (Ugh, did you really need to see a photo of your ex looking cute with his new girlfriend?) You might also feel more secure about yourself on SnapChat: you can post ridiculous selfies, embarrassing moments, and less-than-flattering pics because you know it will go away within a few seconds.
If you ever feel like other social media is bringing you down, just remember that SnapChat is here to lift you up. Snap away, friends!
