Today's Kids Face 'Facebook Depression' - Yahoo! News
Prolly all that radiation in their milk.
Don't even say it. My kids actually mentioned being worried about radiation last night. I set them straight however
Ooops, that presactly what I did
The constant worry over on line "social" status is warping children and adults alike.
The sooner you realize that the minutiae of your daily life is meaningless the better off you will all be.
I see Facebook addicts as sad lonely people to begin with, is it any wonder people with such a need for external validation even if it's from an anonymous post on a computer are prone to depression?
Yes the internet is changing the social dynamic.
Automobiles did, too.
I am not a teen, but I do relate to the "Facebook Depression" somewhat. I have noticed that when I have spent too much time on the website, I start to feel down simply because it seems like everyone's having a better time than I am. That, of course, isn't true. People generally don't post what is negative about their life(including me), and so they sometimes give the false impression that everything is going great. I also relate to being offended when someone declines my friend request--I think this is very understandable because you start to wonder about yourself...am I not cool enough, nice enough, smart enough, pretty enough, etc? The way I have moved past this is to realize that anyone that I actually talk to a lot is already on my Facebook, or, if they aren't yet, they won't decline the request. Most requests that are declined are from people you never really interact with or interacted with anyway. Also, I find that if I don't look at other people's pictures, then I don't feel bad about what is going on in my own life. Lesson learned? Mind your own business and everything will be fine.
Good way to get sued...
