Scientists recommend social media to behave more modestly

Boasting new things in social media — one of the main reasons of envy

Scientists from City University London, Carnegie Mellon University and Bocconi University are advised not to post information about major purchases in social networks. Share a photo of the new car better with the closest people. Others may not understand and decide what you are trying to boast, writes The Hindustan Times.

The desire to please others through Facebook and other social networks does not necessarily lead to the expected effect. Most people are not eager to hear about other people's successes.

The feeling of envy online can turn into a negative attitude in real life. Researchers are advised to be modest to put themselves in the place of those people who are reading your messages on social networks to avoid serious consequences and discord in relationships with friends.
