User Comments: Is Facebook Bad For Our Self-Esteem?

In the fifth installment of our Digital Lives series, we explore how Facebook and our carefully crafted online personas affect our own relationship with ourselves. And what better way to understand the effects of Facebook than to ask Facebook users themselves?

We posed this question to our Facebook followers:

Digital Lives #5 Callout

We received a lot of great responses to the question. Some expressed gratitude for Facebook as a platform that allows them to stay connected with distant friends. Others expressed a general dislike with Facebook for having to see every detail of their friends’ lives.  Here are some of the responses:

      I agree. I am amazed at the garbage that people post. The innocuous details of their lives and the political arguments for the public to see makes me think how sick our society has become!
