A study by researchers at the University of California, Yale, and Facebook has found that moods can spread virally through social media sites such as Facebook.Facebook Study Indicates Moods Can Travel Across The Network [bbc.co.uk]


They found that for every one person directly affected by rain, one to two others would also feel the impact.
