Having Someone "Like" Your Facebook Post Feels as Good as Sex?
We ALL need to step away from our computers and get out of the house more. Because our brains are completely effed up.
to a new study out of Harvard, when someone on Facebook gives your post
a "Like," it feels just as good to your brain as HAVING SEX.
researchers found this happens because every post you make has a little
bit of self-disclosure. By putting yourself out there, you're
inherently risking rejection.
--So when you're NOT rejected . . .
and you get a "Like" that shows you're being accepted . . . it hits the
reward center of your brain. You get the same feeling from having sex
or eating food.
