Do you hate the FOMO you feel after scrolling through someone's particularly #blessed life on Instagram or Facebook? It's no secret that social media can sometimes make you feel less than stellar about yourself, but not every app or network seems designed to bring you down. A new study just revealed that SnapChat is the social media that makes us happiest, so snap away for your own benefit.

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!
