People Ignored On Facebook Feel Isolation, Less ‘Meaningful Life’ Other Research Shows “The Opposite”

May 13, 2014

New research published in the journal Social Influence analyzes how Facebook  communication has affected people’s feelings of their own social value and self-esteem. The study finds that the more Facebook likes and comments that a person receives, the more likely they are to feel positive about themselves. On the other hand, the fewer likes and comments responding to a person’s status reflected feelings of loneliness and low self-worth. Some participants who did not receive feedback showed “lower levels of belonging, self-esteem, control and meaningful existence,” write the researchers.

While other research study indicates because  your life is meaningless  you’re on Facebook.



Ask The Eye No Masters Degree Conflict? Put It On Facebook

April 17, 2014

Dear Eye View

Several years ago I was enrolled in a Ph.D. program at an Ivy League university. About halfway into my second year I fell into a deep depression. I realized my proposed dissertation was garbage, and that I didn’t want to pursue a career in academia. Somehow I passed my classes, and at the end of the school year I left abruptly. I had confided to one professor that I was unhappy. He said that my most significant paper would qualify as a master’s thesis and knew I had enough credits, so he suggested I submit it and get the master’s. I couldn’t even do that. Then my computer died and I lost most (though not all) of my work; it was one of the greatest weights ever lifted off my shoulders. Now four years later I am the happiest I have ever been, but I’m looking back with regret that I didn’t follow through. I have the knowledge that a master’s degree from a prestigious university represents, but I do not have the piece of paper. (No way can I redo the work.) My life is great and I love my new career. My work is only tangentially related to my old field, so should I just completely put this out of my mind forever? If so, how?

Dear SM

I understand your concern. You claim you got depressed and your computer broke.  You sound conflicted. You write you are the happiest you have ever been but have regrets in the same sentence. One way to stop this conflict is to lie. Lie  about having a masters degree. Put it on Facebook. This should help with your conflict.  Hope this helps.





Sheryl Sanberg Wants To Ban Word Bossy Refuses To Turn The Other Cheek

March 10, 2014

Can banning one school-yard word really change the world? Sheryl Sandberg says yes.

Sandberg — the chief operating officer of Facebook and author of the best-selling book “Lean In” — is spearheading the launch of a campaign today to ban the word “bossy,” arguing the negative put-down stops girls from pursuing leadership roles.

“We know that by middle school, more boys than girls want to lead,” Sandberg said, “and if you ask girls why they don’t want to lead, whether it’s the school project all the way on to running for office, they don’t want to be called bossy, and they don’t want to be disliked.”

Sheryl Sanberg of Facebook refused to turn the other cheek.

According to several reports, the agency will also be collecting personal information from sites like Facebook and Twitter. It says the effort is to catch people trying to beat the system, but some say it goes too far. Attorney Kristen Mathews warns to be careful with what you say on social media platforms. She has concerns the government is pushing the limits of what has historically been considered private.

Bored Teenagers Turning Away From Facebook In Droves, Myoldfacespace To The Rescue

March 4, 2013

Facebook has made the startling admission  that teenagers are becoming bored with the social networking  giant.

And as Facebook approaches its tenth  anniversary the firm published its annual 10-K report last month revealing that  its younger users are increasingly turning away from the multi-billion dollar  business.

Though Facebook and Myspace are in discussions to  create “Myoldfacespace” the site for  people who don’t want to go to their 30 year class reunion.


Hillary Clinton Wants Us To Believe Youtube Video But Not Believe Real Time Facebook Post, Stupid

October 25, 2012

Hillary Clinton has downplayed emails that  suggest the White House knew an Islamic  militant group had claimed credit for the attack on the U.S. consulate in  Benghazi, Libya on September 11 just two hours after it took place.

The dismissal comes after three internal  emails sent by her State Department staff surfaced in which officials specifically mention that Libyan group  Ansar al-Sharia had claimed responsibility.

The Secretary of State said that the group’s  claims of responsibility on Facebook and Twitter were not ‘evidence’ – and that  they had also denied carrying out the attacks in the same time.

Clinton wants us to believe a video on Youtube intiated the attack in Libya, but disregard Facebook posts where terrorists take credit for attack.. Weak


Facebook Plans A New Campus In Major Expansion Plan Using Paper Profits Stockholder Feel Oppressed

September 14, 2012

Facebook (FB) already has 2,000 employees at its headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif. But it’s preparing for a major expansion. Eventually, its current location—the East Campus—will hold 6,600 employees. Another 2,800 will occupy a second site, the West Campus, across the Bayfront Expressway.

Facebook has hired Frank Gehry’s architecture firm, Gehry Partners, to design a new, sprawling office building which will house those engineers in a big, open space, with walls cleverly angled so the insides don’t feel oppressive.

New Facebook campus all green, investors oppressed waiting on their green, as stock price plummets.

Ask The Eye, Face It….. Redefine Your Immortality

April 11, 2012

Dear Eye View

About six months ago my doctor gave me two more years to live. I started using that time to make peace with my family, especially my wife, as we’ve had a turbulent marriage. Things have been going well so far and our marriage is probably the best it’s ever been. What I am wondering now is if I should tell my wife that I’ve had an affair for eight years with another woman. It ended a couple of years ago and we’re not even in contact anymore. But there is always a chance that my wife will find out. I don’t want her besieged with unanswered questions or anger she can’t express after I’m gone. I am also worried that if she were to discover the affair after my demise, she will feel as though the last good years of our marriage were a sham. But on the other hand, I don’t want to spend the last year or two we have together dealing with this revelation. What is your take on all this? And yes, I know I’m a total jerk, among other things you can’t publish publicly. Please spare me the judgment and give me some advice here.


Dear A

I understand your concern. I would suggest breaking the news to your wife like everyone else. Post it on Facebook  and redefine your immortality . In terms of your immorality.. You’re on your own..Hope this helps.


As Facebook Goes Public, Users Ask Where’s Our Cut? We Are The Product

February 7, 2012

By my calculation, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder and chief executive, owes me about $50.

Without me, and the other 844,999,999 people poking, liking and sharing on the site, Facebook would look like a scene from the postapocalyptic movie “The Day After Tomorrow”: bleak, desolate and really quite sad.  Facebook surely would never be valued at anything close to $100 billion, which it very well could be in its coming initial public offering.

In the company’s S-1 filing, submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission this week, Facebook boasts about its statistics: annually, people “like” one trillion things; 91 billion photos are uploaded; half a billion people use Facebook on mobile phones; and hundreds of millions are annoyingly “poked.”

So all this leaves me with a question: Where’s my cut? I helped build this thing, too. Facebook laid the foundation of the house and put in the plumbing, but we put up the walls, picked out the furniture, painted and hung photos, and invited everyone over for dinner parties.
