A new study sug­gests that up­dat­ing your sta­tus or com­ment­ing on a friend’s hol­i­day pic­tures on Face­book can make us lose track of time as we do it. Peo­ple who are us­ing Face­book or surf­ing web suf­fer im­paired per­cep­tion of time, said the study pub­lished in Jour­nal of Ap­plied So­cial Psy­chol­ogy. “We found ev­i­dence that In­ter­net and Face­book-re­lated stim­uli can dis­tort time per­cep­tion due to at­ten­tion and arousal re­lated mech­a­nisms,” said the study by re­searchers from Kent Univer­sity.
