The way you communicate with people has its own influence on how people perceive you. If you always share negative content people will view you as a negative type of person. On the other hand if you share upbeat information along with images and jokes people will assume you are friendly and approachable.
Have you ever read posts on your own page from your friends that have made you feel jealous of what they were up to? You wished that your life was that much fun?
