Your Facebook status reveals about your mental health - July 29th, 2015

Your Facebook status reveals about your mental health

A new study has found that Facebook statuses are actually a pretty accurate way of telling if somebody is depressed. The paper, published this month in the Journal of Cyberpsychology, Behaviour and Social Networking, found that words with connotations of positive emotions were used twice as often as negative words, and that positive words had little correlation to a user's life satisfaction. On the other hand, those who posted negative statuses usually reported that they were also unhappy offline.

Study reveal that positive wordings and connotations do not reveal about the personís life but the negative feelings expressed by person most probably turns to be true. The researchers from Stanford, Cambridge and the Singapore Management University hope that their social media work will shed light on the nuances between self-reported levels of wellbeing and our real psychological state as betrayed by our behaviours.

The study was conducted over 1,124 Facebook users were asked to describe about their moods using my personality, a Facebook app which lets you volunteer in psychology studies. Last week a small study from Northwestern University reported that data from your Smartphone can also predict mental health - the more time you spend on your phone and the fewer places you visit, the more likely you are to be depressed.

Well, but there are people who keep on posting about issues which are not just absurd or insane but it provides frenzy sensation. Facebook should update his design by redesign line from whatís in your mind and transform it to whatís your problem.
