One aspect of human social life is that we all engage in social comparisons: we evaluate our own abilities, salary, status, possessions and feelings relative to those of other people.
Is that person happier? More successful? Better looking?
One interesting study looked at social connection while commuting to work (on a train or bus). Participants either had to have a conversation with someone or had to enjoy themselves alone or do whatever they usually do. People predicted that they would be happiest enjoying their alone time, followed by what they usually do, and would feel weird about having a conversation.
But people were wrong about their own happiness: the most positive experience was chatting to a stranger, and not solitude.
hiMoment wants to foster social connection rather than social comparison, so we let you share your moments with those people that made that moment special, but do not promote social sharing that may create upward comparisons and their negative consequences on us.
