“On days when people felt more insecure about their partner’s feelings than they typically do, they posted more relationship-relevant information on Facebook,” researchers said.

The same is true for people who were anxious in general.

According to researchers, “the studies highlight the role of relationships in how people portray themselves to others”. The study was published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
