Facebook feelings are contagious, study shows
Emotions can spread in an online social network, a study shows. The study also demonstrated that positive emotions spread more than negative. The researchers believe their findings have widespread implications. Emotions, they write, “might ripple through social networks to generate large-scale synchrony that gives rise to clusters of happy and unhappy individuals.” And with ever more avenues for expression in a digitally connected world, they write, “we may see greater spikes in global emotion that could generate increased volatility in everything from political systems to financial markets.”
