    Facebook is known as a platform for keeping people connected, but that connection could actually be hindered from the way you act behind a screen.

    Studies show anger is the most viral emotion to be posted and shared online.

    A local psychologist says when posting online, all of the triggers in your brain that respond to eye contact and tone of voice are lost.

    This causes people receiving the post to take the words more harshly than if it were a conversation in real life.

    Facebook makes it easy to unfriend someone, that way you never have to see those posts again.

    But that digital unfriending translates into reality.
