How Social Media Is Making Us Depressed & What To Do About It: Social media is a modern boogieman, blamed for the downfall of community and propriety, our own sanity. Let me explain it to you with some science. In psychology and sociology, there’s been a bunch of discussion about how social networks like Facebook can contribute to what’s called the fear of mission out. It’s the anxiety many of us have – some more accurate than others – that we’re not living our best lives compared with our peers. We could be doing more things; connecting with more people, hugging more kittens, having more fun. And social networking sites are linked to an increased fear of missing out: We now have solid digital evidence when our friends don’t invite us to a dinner, or when they have a lovely moment (on a vacation or in a relationship) that we’ve never had. But how do we handle that anxiety and what does it mean for our overall self-esteem?

How We Claimed A Pinterest Username That's Already Been Taken: Last year, Pinterest had 100 million monthly active users and now it is 150 million. It might be still behind the Facebook or Twitter but a pin is not the same thing as a Facebook post or a tweet. The average lifespan of a tweet is 24 minutes, a Facebook post is 90 minutes and a pin is 1 week! Moreover, driving traffic to your Facebook page is almost impossible unless you pay Facebook to promote it and Facebook still got problems with hashtags. Driving traffic to your website with Pinterest is a lot easier but can people find your Pinterest profile with your unique username or do they have to search since you don’t have the same username for every social media platform? When it comes to usernames, no doubt we were extremely lucky. When we start Greenide, we were only able to claim Facebook and Twitter usernames because others have already been taken. We had use @greenidecom username for our both Instagram and Pinterest accounts, we also had to fill up forms and contact those websites in order to claim our rightful usernames. If you still don’t know how to claim inactive Instagram username, you can read it here.
