Facebook gives users a plethora of emoticons, with everything from the basic smiley to Chuck Norris in play. But Facebook Content Strategist Amy Thibodeau warns that, just like with most good things, moderation is key when it comes to emoji.
According to a new study completed by the Facebook data team, “the more people use Facebook, the better they feel and those who share and communicate the most with their friends feel even better”. This study was presented as part of the “Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems” in Chicago this past week. Facebook surveyed users measuring “bonding social capital”, “bridging social capital”, as well as loneliness. 1200 people were surveyed by a system which not only asked questions but monitored the users’ site activity.
