It's almost like humans are a social animals and we feel compassion for friends and Facebook magnifies those responses.

My wife was in med school until she had major heart problems and had to drop out.  Eventually she fell into a deep depression when all her classmates were graduating and posting about it on Facebook and she was seeing all this stuff.

Eventually my daughter and I couldn't take it any more, so we staged an intervention where we said either she quits looking at that shiat or we're leaving.

It took some work but we prevailed.  Things are a lot better since.
