Ron Gutman: The hidden power of smiling
Smiling is great. But i think it is mostly the reason behind why you are smiling. Cause happiness shouldn't really be measured by a mere showing of the teeth. Yes, smiling could be a way in which you react to your happiness or positive feeling. If you make you life and environment positive than inturn it might increase smiling. I agree, that smiling can improve social interaction-this might be the reason why smiling more has improved an individual's quality of life through social determinants.

The Internet: Has it made us more or less social?
Yes I agree, often i experience alot of 'attention seeking' statuses on my facebook newsfeed. In my opinion, the internet in particular social media, have become avenues in which we can express ourselves which can often turn very addictive, due to the overload of interaction in chat rooms etc. Because this interaction can be done through a simple 'like or comment' it gives the reciever a type of social reward that encourages them to sit down at the computer more often. This is detrimental to health as problems such as obesity and breakdown of intimate relationships, outside of the internet. Healthy social relationships reward and encourage an individual to make the best of themselves, and so far the social media hasn't had that much of a positive impact on this basis.
