No other single website then change our life like facebook if we take it practically created to make connections (Friends). Mark Zuckerberg one of co-founder of facebook was no stranger to tech world when he created thefacebook.com. According to study his idea or may not be his idea purely was instant hit back then. Many people are creating social network on the philosophy on which facebook created. But those are small network may be for small community or for a cause. Facebook want to connect every person on the planet to internet. It all started in a dorm room of Harvard university. Where a 19 year old boy hacked into Harvard database to create “facemash“. Which is basically a hot or not website. This website let college student vote who is hot by seeing picture side by side.
How Facebook Enter’s in Our Life
Facebook is best way of communicating message to public. With almost 2 billion people are on this service you can think of its reach. To get latest news we look no further then facebook. Because as Facebook’s growth increased news outlets and publisher created there profiles on the network. For a simple reason to communicated with there reader base. Facebook pages are one stop for getting know your favorite celebs. When facebook was develop no one have ever imagine. This scale now facebook is integral part of our life and that day will soon come when it become inescapable.
I am not facebook addict but regularly check and update information on this service. and now facebook own Instagram and whatsapp it has more information about us then we know about each other. i was reading a research published in 2013 which state that how use of facebook affects young adults and how facebook affecting there happiness which is not good in any means. Since then, researchers have found similar trends in people who use Facebook in particular.
In 2015, a team of Danish researchers asked participants in a study of 1,095 people to stop using Facebook for an entire week; those who did experienced a significant increase in concentration, happiness, and satisfaction with their social lives. Along the same lines, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh surveyed 1,787 young adults in the United States in 2016 and found that social media use in young adults was strongly correlated with depression.
Compared with those who checked social media networks the least frequently, more active social-media users in the study were 2.7 times more likely to have depression, even when controlling for other factors that might contribute to depression risk, including living situation, household income, and education level.So, given all that conflicting evidence, can we say whether Facebook is good or bad for us? A closer look at the research suggests that the question itself is too broad — that the answer depends more on how people use these social networks than whether they use them at all.
Over the years, researchers have identified a variety of factors — how well you know your online “friends,” how you present yourself on Facebook, whether you use Facebook actively or browse it passively — that can affect how the website influences your mood.
Dominance of Facebook
In One study published in 2014 it was found that participants who used Facebook more often were more likely to compare themselves to people who seemed “better” than they were. In Other study done in 2012 it was found that the more “friends” a person had in their Facebook network that they didn’t know personally, the more likely they were to believe that their friends were happier and leading better lives.
This tendency reflects a phenomenon called “correspondence bias,” in which we draw broad assumptions about other people’s lives and personalities based on the limited information we have about their actions and words — or, in Facebook-land, their status updates and photos. We’re particularly prone to correspondence bias for people we don’t know well. I don’t understand that concept of thousand of people added to your profile you barley or not at all know them. We humans are so addict to this network that we have create an online image of our-self.
We represent ourself more honestly online. In a study done by Kent state university which state that people share there sad emotions and bad things happen to them on facebook because people more likely to experience a boost in well-being and to feel like they had support from their Facebook friends. Deleting Your facebook profile is very difficult because it is your gateway to world and for some if you are not on facebook you don’t exist.
In 2017 even children having facebook profiles and want to communicate there messages. Facebook affecting there studies they are wasting more time scrolling through feeds then actually doing some quality workout. I Know probably by now you were thinking why i am still using this network. So answer is simple you want connect with more people you should be on facebook. There are new player in town like snapchat we will discuss that another time. For now i wish you all are not addict to likes game. And may not want more and more useless friends. Stay Smart;
