Research has shown that Facebook makes us unhappy, but we can’t just “escape”. How do we deal with fake, over-perfect, Facebook lives?
People like to share their happiness with others on social networks, or so it seems. In fact, Facebook serves many people to create a false image of how everything is perfect for them, how they live a fairytale life, to make others jealous, envious or to present themselves as a perfectly successful person in all segments of life. For many, who do not play such a game (at least not consciously), those things bother them. Because of that, they start to feel bad, they re-examine their life, they start to think that they are unhappy, ugly and that their life is dark, boring, unexciting.
And there is no need to blame. This is a normal occurrence. Facebook acts as an offensive advertisement on users. If someone emphasizes their cool, fun, successful, happy side every day, others who observe it easily conclude that this is exactly the real life of that person. Although, when they think about it better, they know it’s not like that. However, many do not think about it, and that bad feeling remains and accompanies them.

And what can you do if you are unhappy about Facebook? You can leave Facebook, and if you are not able to, say because of work, then you have to reorient. Like when you block ads on your internet browser. You can block people who are too bragging or restrict their comments with the “Unsubscribe” option. In addition, Facebook gives you the option to choose for yourself what will appear on you
Home Page. If you block them from the “news feed”, they will not know it, and you will no longer watch their “happy” posts. And if you really want to see what’s new with them, just visit their “wall”.
And after all, look at Facebook as a big village: no one is what they are presented to be, so don’t let some comments, photos and posts affect you and your mood. Put your friends in the foreground, who are important to you for work, and your favorite pranksters.
