Facebuk Kan Has A Sad?

Facebook stalking has become so ubiquitous that it's as much of an American pastime as baseball. After all, given the choice between doing homework or staring mindlessly at the computer and judging people based on their photos, there's really no debate (hey, freshman superlatives!). And we'd rather Facebook chat than study meta-messages in communication any day.

But perhaps that's about to change. Onward State (Penn State's student-run blog) tipped us off to a new study which says that all that texting and instant messaging might actually make us more depressed. Like your BlackBerry doesn't already cause enough problems?
