Facebook Triggers "The Green-eyed Monster"

Posted: Updated:

Get ready for your Facebook to look a little different.

The social network is rolling out a new search feature called "graph search."   It will allow users to do more advance searches through the social network.   

Now, you type a statement in the search bar like "restaurants in Philadelphia" or "people who went to my high school" and you get detailed results.    

Facebook announced the feature back in January and up until now it was only available in limited preview.

Now, are you suffering from Facebook jealousy?   

According to a new study, high academic achievers are most likely to experience feelings of "romantic jealousy" on the social network. 

Researchers say these people are perfectionists and cheating would upset them the most.    Women were found to be more 'green-eyed' then men, but the winking emoticon on a partner's page rattled men most of all.
