Pretty intersting article. For us who have a facebook, that is.

It seems alot of people online always post about how awesome their life is, even if they are exaggerating, and other people find that their life isn't as great, so the sadness take a toll.

Discuss.

sXedit: I know the article talks alot about pictures, but it seems like it could be more than that(status updates, etc.)

Stupid youtube prank videos make me feel like this, so I can see why this would happen. I don't know if this is a conscious decision but I don't go on fb as much as I used to.

But facebook is the only way I can talk to people! Without it, the same people would not even remember that I exist.
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

I see more people bitching about their life on Facebook, not bragging about it.


Exactly this. Everyone in facebook is either a meme-poster, a sad-f*ck, a slut, or a cynic who makes fun of the other groups of people.
Not exactly a frequent poster.

My brother was/is doing a study exactly like that one (biggest one in Sweden). Damn copycats.

Not gonna lie, i get sad when i realize how much my life sucks compared to my peers. No one ever takes pics of me drunk, with people writing and peeing all over my body.
Just a sub-par guitar player..

I fall under the slut category.

Although this study is probably true. Humans tend to be jealous by nature and want what others have.

Facebook is ****ing awesome for me .. moving around all the time .. I wouldn't be able to keep in contact with all the beautiful people I meet in my travels as well without it .. plus it's good if I ever decide to actually plan the next leg instead of just turning up .. 'Alright im going Argentina' .. then I remember all the good mates I've made from there that i still talk to regularly .. have a quick chat with them or whatever .. boom, instant couch.

I used to HATE it a few years ago, almost deleted it .. but nowadays it's one of my best friends.

If you're insecure and lonely, then seeing people being super happy and also seeing people complain a shit ton will only make you more lonely.

I use facebook to look at people who suck and boost my self esteem.

I agree, Facebook is great for people like that. Especially military brats.

Facebook makes me happy because I don't have a baby and no longer live in my hometown.

I don't feel I really fit in too well/close with my social circles/groups outside of my 8-10 or so gold friends . So since I don't want people to know I'm a closet loser, I never got around to making one!
