(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new study found that if you are dealing with a tough break-up, you may want to avoid spending a lot of time on Facebook.

Researchers in Israel found that the social networking site can make you psychotic.

They say vulnerable people who recently ended a relationship or lost a loved one showed gradually increasing psychotic symptoms including delusions, anxiety and confusion in connection with intensified use of social networking.

One patient even came to believe that the person she was in contact with online was constantly trying to touch her physically.
