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.
