High academic achievers exhibit feelings of romantic jealousy on Facebook

According to a study people who are high-achieving in academics are more likely to experience feelings of romantic jealousy on Facebook.

US researchers conducted several studies of undergraduate students and found that the higher a student's grade point average (GPA), the greater their levels of 'Facebook jealousy'were. Participants were asked to envision several hypothetical scenarios, such as discovering a message in their partner's Facebook inbox from a person of the opposite sex that reads "What are you up to later?"

Women had higher levels of Facebook jealousy than men, a finding that confirms research from earlier studies. The findings were found by researcher Denise Friedman, an associate professor of psychology at Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia. Source:'LiveScience'
