The study of Lancaster University revealed the benefits of placing photos on the network.
To search for participants, the researchers sent out an invitation through social networks. For participation it was necessary to post one photo per day for two months and complete the questionnaire. Scientists tracked the posted photos, as well as the accompanying text and further communication in the comments. Two months later the participants reported that they felt more involved in life, and the process of photographing made them more thoughtful and attentive.
It turned out that the exchange of photos on the Web gives people a sense of belonging and helps fight against loneliness. A daily creative activity brings pleasure and helps to look at the world with a fresh look. Scientists say, it’s all about the active process of making sense: it is he who brings a feeling of satisfaction with life.
