PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — More than 1.5 billion people belong to Facebook, and about 700 million log on each day. If you’re one of them, you may not “like” recent news about the effects of social networking. Facebook can make people feel worse about themselves.

According to a fascinating study, the more often people logged on, the more likely they reported feeling unhappy in any given moment over the course of the two-week study, frequent Facebook users also felt increasingly dissatisfied with their lives.  There is one obvious problem: the hours you spend updating your profile or scrolling through your news feed leave you less time for exercise. Since physical activity boosts your mood and improves your outlook, staying sedentary alone may spark sadness. The other is that many people put only the best part of their lives on Facebook and a few hours scrolling through your friends post may make you inadequate because they do not always measure reality.

Five-Octave Singer Is Scheduled To Perform Song On BET’S “Bobby Jones Gospel” Program on The 35-Year Old Show’s Final Season

Gospel music’s smoothest balladeer Earnest Pugh has a new classic entitled “Trade It All” available for immediate download from all digital retailers such as the iTunes Store and Amazon MP3. The uplifting song of hope and inspiration hails from Pugh’s forthcoming EP “Fully Persuaded” (EPM/P-Man). The compelling tune was written and produced by Lucius B. Hoskins who masterminded Zacardi Cortez’ radio smash “1 on 1” that spent five weeks at #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Gospel Airplay chart in 2013.The five-octave vocalist is now on his way to Washington, D.C. to perform the song on BET’s “Bobby Jones Gospel” program this Friday for the show’s 35th and final season. “This song reminds me of the feeling I had when I first heard `Rain On Us’,” says Pugh who is best known for the #1 hits “Rain On Us” and “I Need Your Glory” which spent nine weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart. “I wrote the song for Earnest at least four years ago but he never got around to recording it because his label took him into another direction,” Hoskins adds. “I recently ran into him and reminded him about the song and the timing was right so we cut it.”
