FAKEBOOK USERS: Many admit making lives seem more exciting on socials
MORE FROM THE REPORT,
A survey by smartphone maker HTC found that more than three quarters of those asked (76%) said they judged their peers based on what they saw on their Instagram, Snapchat or Facebook profiles.
In order to make our own pages and lives appear more exciting, 6% also said they had borrowed items to include in the images in order to pass them off as their own and make others jealous.
More than half of those surveyed said they posted images of items and places purely to cause jealousy among friends and family.
Behavioural psychologist Jo Hemmings said the trend was unsurprising given the rise of social media.
I think we have seen our friends, family, and maybe if you look in the mirror hard enough, yourself as well do this very thing..
Try you best to make things seem fine.. Seem okay..
But all the while, the darkness of sad and fear creep in. You don’t want to express the real you on FACEBOOK though.. people may not ‘like’ ..
