What Does Your Facebook Updates Say About You?

Posted Feb 06 2012 2:02am



Your facebook updates can sum up how you value yourself. In a recent study which is yet to be published in Psychological Science, researchers found people with low self esteem updated negative tidbits about their life and this made them less likable among their peers.

People with high self esteem were more positive and were liked mostly by all. In a direct conversation you get the instant feed back of the listener when you talk negatively. But in a social platform such as facebook everyone tends to keep their feelings about the negative updates to themselves, the study found.

So what is self esteem? A person’s overall estimation of his or her own self worth and so how would you raise your self worth?

Take proper care of yourself, identify the triggers to low self esteem and curb them down, think positive about yourself, be assertive and cultivate hobbies. You should sleep properly, exercise, eat good diet, practice meditation, stop comparing yourself with others, accept compliments and surround yourself with positive people.
