The Week contest: Facebook blues

Last week's question: A new study has found that the more hours Facebook users logged on the social network, the more their sense of happiness, well-being and actual physical health declined, partly because seeing other people’s glorified versions of their lives makes users feel depressed and isolated. Please come up with a medical term to describe this social media-induced malady.
