Research Says, We Can’t Help Sharing Cuteness on FaceBook [VIDEO]

Oh, I am so guilty of this! Sharing videos and pictures of cute babies animals on Facebook, but looks like I’m not alone and guess what? Research says, we just can’t help it.

Rebecca Dyer, a graduate student in psychology at Yale University, said: “You know, you can’t stand it, you can’t handle it, that kind of thing.

“We think it’s about high positive-affect, an approach orientation and almost a sense of lost control.”

Ms Dyer told LiveScience she decided to research the subject after discussing with colleagues how adorable internet pictures often produced an over-reaction, such as the urge to squeeze a critter.

Well, this is great news! Now I can stop feeling guilty that I watch to many animal videos and am always “Oohing and Aahing” at pictures of cute kittens and puppies on Facebook.

In fact, I just found this video of the cutest animals and caught myself just smiling away as I was watching it! Yep, a few Oohs and Aahs slipped out too! Enjoy!
