The Stresses of Facebook
What did people do before cell phones and Facebook were invented? When actual face-to-face interaction was required to invite someone to an event or let them know about the goings on in your daily life.
The only way you got upset or put in a bad mood was by word-of-mouth that you didn’t get invited to the party of the year or to your friends’ baby shower. Now, Facebook does all of that for you and more!
With a click of a button, you can let the whole social media world know exactly what’s going on and what will be going on any day, any time. That, however, is stressing many people out!
With apps like Facebook’s “check-in” or FourSquare, you can let all your friends and their friends know where you are, who you’re with, and what you’re doing. Let the mood swings and jealousy commence!
In a recent survey by Rebtel, “Facebook came in as the top site for those whose emotions were affected.” Roughly half having negative influences by social media. I personally never get jealous, but am like “Hey! I wish I was on that great trip or at that party!” So how does social media, Facebook in particular, make you feel?
It’s a social media world out there…there’s no going back.
