The Psychology of Facebook Examined

"In this analysis of the psychology of Facebook,
a British FB user makes some telling points about how simple the
reasons behind its success are. Among them, fear of 'online social
failure' features prominently. From the article: 'Facebook also digs
away at the insecurities in people...your peers can see your profile on
Facebook, and while they may have 50, 100, 200 friends they will
mockingly see that you have a pathetically small number, confirming
your worst fears about the low opinion they have probably held of you
over all those years etc.'"
