Planet Ivy: Sigmund Freud it ain’t, but a new study claims to show that Facebook can be good for your mental health. These aren’t the words of Mark Zuckerberg’s latest press release, but rather those of Dr Alice Good, whose study was brought to my attention by Yahoo News.
Dr Good claims that going over old posts and photos can have a “self-soothing” effect on your state of mind, lift bad moods and help treat mental health issues. Then again, science is a liar. Sometimes.
