Priv8 :: Add-ons for Firefox

What is priv8? This is a Firefox addon that uses part of the security model of Firefox OS to create sandboxed tabs. Each sandbox is a completely separated world: it doesn t share COOKIEs, storage, and a lots of other stuff with the rest of Firefox, but just with other tabs from the same sandbox. Each sandbox has a NAME and a color, therefore it will be always easy to identify which tab is sandboxed. Also, these sandboxes are permanent! So, when you OPEN one of them the second time, maybe after a restart, that sandbox will still have the same COOKIEs, same storage, etc – as you left the previous time. You can also switch between sandboxes using the cONTEXT menu for the tab. Here an example: with priv8 you can read your gmail webmail in a tab, and another gmail webmail in another tab at the same time. Still, you can be logged in on Facebook in a tab and not in the others. This is nice! Moreover, if you are a web developer and you want to test a website using multiple accounts, priv8 gives you the opportunity to have each account in a sandboxed tab. Much easier then have multiple profiles or login and logout manung>ally every time! Is it stable? I don t know : It works but more test must be done. Help needed! Known issues: window.OPEN doesn t work from a sandbox and e10s is not supported yet. Priv8 is released under Mozilla Public License.

Experimental evidence of massive-scale emotional contagion through social networks

Abstract:

Emotional states can be transferred to others via emotional contagion, leading people to experience the same emotions without their awareness. Emotional contagion is well established in laboratory experiments, with people transferring positive and negative emotions to others. Data from a large real-world social network, collected over a 20-y period suggests that longer-lasting moods (e.g., depression, happiness) can be transferred through networks [Fowler JH, Christakis NA (2008) BMJ 337:a2338], although the results are controversial. In an experiment with people who use Facebook, we test whether emotional contagion occurs outside of in-person interaction between individuals by reducing the amount of emotional content in the News Feed. When positive expressions were reduced, people produced fewer positive posts and more negative posts; when negative expressions were reduced, the opposite pattern occurred. These results indicate that emotions expressed by others on Facebook influence our own emotions, constituting experimental evidence for massive-scale contagion via social networks. This work also suggests that, in contrast to prevailing assumptions, in-person interaction and nonverbal cues are not strictly necessary for emotional contagion, and that the observation of others’ positive experiences constitutes a positive experience for people.
