Earlier this year, six-year-old Scarlett (she's 7 now!) wrote to us at The Psychology of It asking a very important question - "Why do people live if they're only going to die?" We answered Scarlett in an open letter. So impressed by the curiosity and intelligence of this young lady, we thought it only fitting to invite her over for a cup of tea and what turned out to be a very special Conversation on the Couch. You can see it here.
Well this article has been a long time coming, mainly because there is so much research out there on this topic (27,000 Google Scholar articles with the word Facebook in the title!) not to mention all of the conflicting information. I'd like to propose that we look at this article as a starting point in the conversation, with the view of being guided by your comments towards which aspects we might explore next (don't be shy!).
