At Ricochet, we often compare ourselves to Facebook. Members can like, share, post, comment, send private messages, etc. But a few features in place —namely a Code of Conduct, intelligent and eloquent Members who are incredibly invested in the community (as evidenced this weekend!), and the existence of a small Membership fee to keep out the trolls—make Ricochet a more enjoyable experience than Facebook.
BOSTON (CBSDC) - Food, sex and Facebook posting views. It’s what your brain likes best.
The reward given by a person’s brain when a Facebook posting of theirs is viewed, liked and commented on has proven to be comparable in pleasure to the response from food and sex, according to a recent Harvard University study.
The research, which was published last month in an edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that social media outlets give way to an increased rate of “self-disclosure.” The increase in “self-disclosure” leads to a spike in the amount of dopamine produced based on the pleasure or anticipation of a reward as a result of a social-media post being viewed, according to the research.
Facebook, as enjoyable as sex. Ricochet, better than Facebook. Ergo, our new marketing slogan: Ricochet, better than sex and all only $3.67 per month.
For a good time, join Ricochet!
