Posting on Facebook is an easy way to connect with people, but it also can be a means to alienate them. That can be particularly troublesome for those with low self-esteem.
People with poor self-image tend to view the glass as half empty.
They complain a bit more than everyone else, and they often share their
negative views and feelings when face to face with friends and
Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada,
wondered whether those behavior patterns would hold true online. They
published their findings in the journal Psychological Science.
“People with low self-esteem tend to be very cautious and
self-protective,” says one of the researchers, psychologist Amanda L.

approval. … So given that, we thought people with low self-esteem might
censor what they’re saying to present a kind of positive and likable
self-image on Facebook.”
