    It makes me sad when I think of my strawberries. I'm sure they'd be ready to harvest. What has it been... six months?

    Jordan, who is now a postdoctoral fellow studying social psychology at Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business, suggests we might do well to consider Facebook profiles as something akin to the airbrushed photos on the covers of women's magazine. No, you will never have those thighs, because nobody has those thighs. You will never be as consistently happy as your Facebook friends, because nobody is that happy. So remember Montesquieu, and, if you're feeling particularly down, use Facebook for its most exalted purpose: finding fat exes.
    Pretty much.

    Most people filter out the negatives when altering their profile. It's best to remember that when browsing.

    I like to see where old friends are these days. It fun when silly pictures of people's kids and stuff like that pops up on my news feed.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    And you know those people posting witty comments and making constant Facebook updates about how awesome their life is? Guess where they're doing it from? Sitting alone in front of a computer monitor.
    Agreed. I'm just agreeing that being on facebook just compacts that feeling more.

That might be funny... nah, that would seem martyrish...
    Yes, that's another one of those problems with sites like Facebook. Trying to show your best face. It is definitely another annoyance of mine with it.

    Ha. Seems like it's the Fi-dom's that have a issue with facebook. But not the ISFP e9's.

    Facebook doesn't make me sad. I've got a few friends that post some downright hilarious status updates. And I like being able to keep in touch with friends that have moved away.

    Broaden your circle of friends to include people who interact with more authenticity? I went down my Facebook news feed and these are the kinds of things shared by friends and commented on by friends:

    I drank Dieter's Tea. Don't EVER EVER drink Dieter's Tea.
    Go Steelers!
    My pet died and I've finally decided to try an antidepressant.
    For three days I'm doing an "honesty experiment" . . .
    Here's a box I painted and it's for sale on eBay.
    I have a migraine.
    Check out this article (politics, philosophy, time travel . . .)
    You won't believe what I overheard on the bus.
    My son's friend has cancer with 8 months to live (prayer request).
    Does anyone invest in organic food?
    Quotes from Maya Angelou, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, etc.
    Please take political action on this environmental issue, or this one, or this one.
    I got two out of four items done on my to-do list.
    Check out this artist, and this one, and this one.
    I'm working on my novel!
    Sharing this music youtube with you, enjoy.
    Zumba!
    Humor, humor links, and more humor, e.g., "[Name] is cle’a]ni.ng hi’s ke]yb29oa;rd"

    I see Facebook as educational and caring.

    Facebook doesn't make me sad, but I generally have an issue with the new ways people communicate with each other. I tend to think that people spend way too much time facebooking, texting, IMing etc rather than establishing real connections with people and THAT will make you sad.
