Social Media Isn’t All About the Negativity

Looks like social media isn’t totally about the negativity. “… new computational social science study says the positive emotions associated with social media generally outweigh the negative ones. The study, published yesterday (Sept. 30) in Peer J Computer Science journal, examined the content and proliferation of more than 19 million English-language tweets from September 2014. It found that negative content spread faster than positive content—but positive content was shared more and ultimately reached a larger audience.”
