What drives you to keep posting your "good times" pictures on Facebook? Envy is a key motivator behind such posts and that contributes to a decrease in mental well-being among users, says a new study.
I don't spend too much time on FB. I go in, see if I get any updates, and I get out. I don't scroll down to see anybody's posts. If something negative makes it to the top of my news feed, I unfollow that person. That is Facebook's best feature. I realized that nobody's life, that I know of, on FB is as awesome as they make it seem. I only post pics of me and my friends doing activities or at events. None of that narcissistic crap. Only positivity and happiness. I opted out of the comparison game.
"Sharing pictures and stories about the highlights of your life - that's so much of what Facebook is for, so you can't take that away." I believe a lot of people are missing out on the fact that most of the stuff on Facebook are highlights and person's real life. People get a wrong perception about what life is. On the other hand, some people's lives have more highlights than the others...
facebook - where people compare other peoples "highlights" to their own "behind the scenes".
