Moira Burke, Facebook Research Scientist, via No Agenda:
“People are often surprised to learn that we have a large group of researchers here at Facebook with backgrounds in fields like social psychology, communication, and anthropology.”
“Writing a comment on a friend’s post or sending each other messages, these are the kinds of actions that can boost well-being. It’s a lot like being at a party. You can’t just sit in the corner. You need to interact with people that you care about in order to have a meaningful experience.”
This is how you justify using your degree in psychology to keep people coming back to a website that makes them miserable.
