Facebook Thumbs Down You're sitting on your laptop in your bedroom, the glow of your screen far too bright for this time of night; your tired eyes are straining, your back is hunched perhaps permanently, yet you cannot seem to stop your fingers (at this point probably afflicted with carpal tunnel) from scrolling further and further down into the abyss that your Facebook feed has become, as though being unable to tear your eyes away from a train wreck.
