A team of researchers from the University of Bristol have found that the way we talk about ourselves, our teams and our careers has an impact on the way other people perceive us.
In their study, published in the journal Psychological Science, the researchers looked at how players use social media platforms.
They used data from more than 1,500 players and the results showed that they tend to share more positive views of themselves on social networks, and less negative views on social platforms.
The research also revealed that players on social profiles are more likely to get positive reviews from their peers.
The study showed that positive social network interactions were more likely when players used social media to promote their team, whereas negative social network interaction was more likely if they used social networking to promote themselves.
In the case of negative interactions, players on positive social networks were less likely to see negative comments about their team or themselves on their own profiles, while negative interactions were still more likely on negative profiles.
The researchers said: ‘We believe the positive social context of social networking accounts could be an important contributor to our ability to understand and respond to others’ social interactions and to promote our own interests.’
In the future, the study will investigate whether there is a similar positive effect on negative social interactions on negative and positive social profiles.
However, the findings are important because they are a start to a wider exploration of how we engage with other people on social, and how this can lead to positive outcomes for our own team.Read more:
