Celebrity Status

While Facebook is a great outlet for communication I believe there is much to be wary of. Psychologically, it must be taken into account the ridiculous amount of time that people spend during each day using this website. 

There are many practical reasons for this type of communication but when it comes to status updates and some pictures, we may have taken it too far. 

I believe the reason people use these sites so much is because it makes them feel important. It builds up their self esteem. 

On the computer you can be whoever you want to be.

 It allows people to express themselves in ways they would not feel comfortable doing outside of cyberspace. They are able to construct every aspect of their communication. They chose timing, they can manipulate pictures visually. I believe that it gives people a false sense of importance. 

Everyone thinks they are a celebrity.you are not Lindsay Lohan, or Paris Hilton, and pictures of you drunk and passed out WILL affect your future.... So stay humble and use Facebook, but don't abuse it.

  1. Seems a bit harsh. What you say may be true for some, but it may offer comfort and therapeutical value for others.
