SHE SAID: Case of the Mondays?

Such a great theory and video.  Also, I want to go here.

A new Slate article: By helping other people look happy, Facebook is making us sad. By showcasing the most witty, joyful, bullet-pointed versions of people’s lives, and inviting constant comparisons in which we tend to see ourselves as the losers, Facebook appears to exploit an Achilles’ heel of human nature. And women—an especially unhappy bunch of late—may be especially vulnerable to keeping up with what they imagine is the happiness of the Joneses.

This is cool.

    Isn’t it just the case that hardcore Facebook users are sad because they spend so much time interacting with a machine?

  2. I’m sure on some level the substitution of a keyboard to actual interaction is part of some sadness … but I feel like the article was focusing more on Facebook’s design and the effect FB’s use is having on it’s user’s psyche when that design is compared with our inherent desire to compare ourselves to those around us.
    The many levels of FB sadness … I keep saying I’m going to get off it.
