Does Facebook promote envy?

If you observe social websites in general and Facebook in particular, there's clear evidence that boasting is going strong all of the time and that depressed or unfortunate viewers might feel slighted and get envious in view of all this overflow of on-line exuberance, make-pretend success as well as staged happiness.

There seems to be no room for modesty and humility in that space and if you don't observe it with a great deal of cynicism, that “me-me-me” market place could end up hurting your feelings and make you hopelessly wonder “why not me?” Now, how can you deal with that? Just peruse it with a good, healthy filter of common-sense and detachment!
