Psychology and Facebook

Psychology and Facebook



Psychologically speaking, what does someone’s Facebook page say about them? On today’s video, I’m discussing pictures, posts, and people. Want to know if a prospective or current friend is real, fake, or somewhere in the middle? I’ve broken this video into three parts: photos, posts, and people. These three parts specifically address different psychological guideposts about the Facebook page, more importantly the person who’s page it is. When was the last time you looked at someone’s page and drew an immediate decision about their life? How often have you stood behind that decision even when their’s no evidence? We forget that a picture is not reality. A picture could have been taken several times before one was selected to display. We often don’t realize the persona or direction they’re going with that “image.” An image is just that, something that portrays the image they want to show the world. When you look through people’s Facebook pages do you see a lot of famous people? Have you ever wondered how much they know that famous person? How often is it a random happening where they saw the famous person at the store and asked for a selfie? However, isn’t funny how we judge them positively when we see them with famous people? How often do people post family photos? Isn’t odd how some people don’t post any personal photos, is it for safety reasons or are they not that happy at home? Basically, how real are people’s posts? Another area to analyze are the posts on people’s pages. Do they let others post stuff to their page? Do they support others in their endeavors or do they not? When they are out and about, do they check in or not? Do they let others check in for them? The last P is for people. Are their friends real friends, do they know them, or are they collecting friends? Are they really looking for friends that feel like them, think like them, basically looking for their tribe or are they merely collecting friends? Sometimes with some people, it’s all about collecting friends and having 5000. Don’t miss the food for thought section at the end of the video/vlog. These will help you look into your own Facebook persona and understand yourself better. It’s worth the self examination, you ready?
