I thought it was an interesting that people with low- self esteem always posted about negative events or feelings, just like they would in person. It seems that Facebook can even worsen someone's self esteem when posts are liked more then your own, or photos of an event that you were unable to attend show up. I can say I've had experience with this and I know I am not alone. When I post a status I post it for the purpose of getting attention, and recognition that someone understands me, or finds me funny, or approves, in any way, of what I have to say. of course you can say there are many benefits of reconnecting with old friends or family members, and facebook is an easy way to check up on people without picking up the phone or writing a letter. However, I think Facebook uses human nature that seeks approval, and it can make or break someone's self- esteem, affecting them in the long term.
