Yow! Tumblr, Blogger, Pinterest, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram  are one of my Top Social Medias. Okey. Okey! Why not Facebook?

Facebook is easy to use and don't you know that when Friendster still exist, I already have a Facebook Account. Really! But at first, I  don't know how to operate it. Ha-ha! It's normal. Yes I know.

Facebook is not included in the list of my social media because I felt like I'm becoming so emotional.

I did search about Facebook. In fact, it revealed that Facebook can make us unhappy.

No one joins Facebook to be sad and lonely. But a new study from the University of Michigan psychologist Ethan Kross argues that that’s exactly how it makes us feel. Over two weeks, Kross and his colleagues sent text messages to eighty-two Ann Arbor residents five times per day. The researchers wanted to know a few things: how their subjects felt overall, how worried and lonely they were, how much they had used Facebook, and how often they had had direct interaction with others since the previous text message. Kross found that the more people used Facebook in the time between the two texts, the less happy they felt—and the more their overall satisfaction declined from the beginning of the study until its end. The data, he argues, shows that Facebook was making them unhappy.

Okey, what I'm tryin to say is that. Facebook can makes us sad, happy and angry. Okey, if your friends or one of your family posted in their Facebook about you and you accidentally read it. You become emotional. I don't know, but sometimes I don't usually open my Facebook. I usually use my top social medias and just share it to facebook so that everyone will know what I'm doing or what pictures I'm about to share with them.

And one thing. If you're angry don't post it in Facebook or else, it will become an issue. (that's when you don't like to have an issue with someone. Don't post. If you like. Then post. If it is for your Family. Don't post. Respect them. Don't post. Just talk to them. You're not alone. You have your family and friends to talk to. Don't keep it. Speak it. Don't post negative thoughts. It will makes you more sad.) 

When I'm sad or angry. I usually create a post. But if I'm reading it twice or thrice. I deleted it. I don't want to post negative thoughts. If I feel that way, I'm just hanging out with my friends and talk to them. 

 Facebook can makes us sadder and unsatisfied with what God has given to us.

 Another research:
The study authors did not get at the reasons Facebook made their test subjects feel glum. But Jonides suspects it may have to do with social comparison.

"When you're on a site like Facebook, you get lots of posts about what people are doing. That sets up social comparison — you maybe feel your life is not as full and rich as those people you see on Facebook," he says.

Interestingly, Jonides notes, the study found the effects of Facebook are most pronounced for those who socialize the most "in real life." He says the folks who did the most direct, face-to-face socializing and used social media were the ones who reported the most Facebook-related mood decline.

"It suggests that when you are engaging in social interactions a lot, you're more aware of what others are doing and, consequently, you might be more sensitized about what's happening on Facebook and comparing that to your own life," Jonides says.

If you're feeling bummed, researchers did test for and find a solution. The prescription for Facebook despair is less Facebook. Researchers found that face-to-face or phone interaction — those outmoded, analog ways of communication — had the opposite effect. Direct interactions with other human beings led people to feel better.

So, warriors! Don't stay in Facebook in 1 or 2 hours (it depends). Or else. I don't know. But check your feelings. Talk to your friends, not your Facebook Friends who are not really your friends in person.

Never mind me, I'm just hungry.  I'm not against in Facebook. I like Facebook. It  keeps me connected to my true friends.

Now, time to go home.  Again.
Never mind me.

'till my next entry!
