COSMO BREAKS IT DOWN!
From the endless posts from new moms to posts about dinner and more, FACEBOOK breaks down what they call the "most annoying Facebook posts" and what those statuses really mean.
The article... is awesome.
From the article:
With all that bragging, it’s no wonder a Stanford University study found that social networking sites create feelings of loneliness and dissatisfaction. The reason? Since we generally use FB to report only on the good things we have going on, reading status updates makes you think everyone else is happier and having more fun than you are. Rarely do we hear about people getting dumped via text or see photos of them looking like a zombie after a long Monday. Rather, we get news about their exciting career and relationship developments, and see pics of them looking their hottest. What’s more, a separate study by York University in Canada found that people with low self-esteem and narcissistic tendencies were the most likely to use Facebook to “self-promote.” Basically, what you see there is not an accurate representation of the person’s real life.
So, now you no doubt want to read what your posts mean and such, since, well, you know, you only present one side of things to the world. You know, because you want everyone to think things are perfect...
... and no one really needs to know about that zit, right? LOL.
