People share more when they’re happy. They talk more, blog more, and tweet more.
That’s why when people go silent on social media we get worried. An inactive profile screams anxiety, confusion, or life changes.
It’s true however that a dormant account could also signify busyness or burnout. We all know someone who’s given up Facebook and Twitter completely. Even Jack Dorsey tweets less frequently today on Twitter.
People generally share less offline and online when shit hits the fan. We’ve all been stuck in the doldrums. It’s just amazing that life’s transitions can be seen with so few clicks.
