How negative posts make people dislike you.

The Atlantic published a piece on how people with low self esteem tend to publish negative posts on Facebook. Then those negative posts make people dislike that person, which harms their social life and leads to even lower self esteem.

I don't know about low self esteem, but I do believe people who constantly vent with negativity (about politics, or railing against one tech company or another) can alienate the people who follow them, either here, on Facebook or on Twitter -- without realizing it.

What do you think?
