So, #Facebook  just did an interesting study where news feeds were skewed with either positive or negative posts, to see if they could impact an end user's mood.  In short, they took about 3,000,000 posts from about 700K users, and scored each as happy or not-so-much.

As you might guess, that content looks to have had a parallel impact, based on how a user would continue to post back to feed, either positively or negatively respectively.  

The takeaway is that it shows more experimental evidence that we can be emotionally influenced, not only by what we experience face-to-face, but by what we glean from our digital social networks.  

It makes me wonder how something like this may be used "for good" in other social networks, such as #Salesforce.com or other organizational networks, where managers might, for example, want to improve morale for sales or production staff.

Just today under cute animals, there was a bullfighter attacking that bull. How in the world is that cute. It really pissed me off. Don't want to see animals being hurt. How the hell is that cute, just shows what you said, that post, I'm angry.
