You’re not going to believe this, but Facebook just introduced a new feature that ISN’T a way to violate your privacy. I didn’t know they were even capable of that.
In fact, it’s sort of the OPPOSITE. It’s a new feature that lets you COMPLETELY avoid any trace of your EX.
As of yesterday, when you change your relationship status from “in a relationship” to “single,” Facebook will guide you through the process.
It’ll give you options to scrub any of their future posts from your news feed . . . to block your posts from showing up in THEIRS . . . and to remove any posts or photos you tagged them in.
They say the new options are, quote, “part of our ongoing effort to develop resources for people who may be going through difficult moments in their lives.”
We all feel like we’re supposed to prioritize family over friends. But it might lead to an early DEATH.
Researchers at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada analyzed more than 400,000 people to figure out what impact friends and family have on your lifespan.
And they found having a strong social life with friends has a positive impact . . . it improves your chance of living longer by 7%.
But having strong connections with your family might do the OPPOSITE. They didn’t give a percentage, but they say that regular contact with family might actually add stress to your life, rather than make you feel loved and supported.
There is SOME upside to spending time with your family, though. The researchers found that spending time with family, friends, or both leads to a HAPPIER life.
So even if it’s a shorter, more stressful life, at least it’s happy. And at least you’ll die early with everyone saying you were a good son or daughter?
