Our Phone Notifications Are Putting Us In A Bad Mood
It’s no secret that folks are addicted to their phones these days, and are likely checking them every few minutes to make sure they don’t miss any important notifications. Well, while those notifications may be keeping us constantly in the loop, they are apparently also making us very unhappy.
A new study by researchers at Nottingham Trent University finds that a third of the smartphone notifications we receive actually put us in a bad mood. The study looked at 50 subjects over a five-week period, with those in the study getting about half a million notifications during the period. Overall they found that 32% of those pop ups resulted in negative feelings leaving the subjects either hostile, upset, nervous, afraid or ashamed.
Believe it or not, the notifications that made people feel the worst were ones centered around things like general phone updates and Wi-Fi availability, with work messages, particularly those that arrived in bulk, also negatively impacting subjects’ mood. But not all notifications were bad. In fact, those that came from friends actually put folks in a good mood, giving them a feeling of belonging and a social connection.

Mom searching for her potential "best mom friend forever" she saw in Target
Florida mom Nikki Pennington has become a viral star after writing a “missed connections” Facebook postabout a mom she wished she’d befriended in Target.It was in the crayon aisle at a Target in the Tampa Bay area on Sept. 25 around 7 p.m. that Pennington spotted a woman she knew could be her “BMFF,” her abbreviation for the potential best mom friend forever.
The mystery woman also had diapers, soda, wine and chocolate in her cart, which, again, confirmed her suspicions they were, in fact, “meant to be best mom friends.” “I was wearing my mom couture complete with dry shampoo hair, no makeup, yesterday’s t-shirt and yoga pants,” Pennington’s post began. “You were also wearing yoga pants with flip flops and a messy bun. The venti Starbucks in your hand was a dead giveaway that even though you were wearing yoga pants you had in fact not come from the gym. I know because I was doing the exact same thing.” She wrote that she tried to see the name penned on the woman’s Starbucks cup, “but...at my age I’m on the verge of needing readers to see that far away,” she quipped.Pennington’s post has 6,000 likes and nearly 2,000 shares on Facebook, largely from moms who said they relate.“I’ve been getting amazing feedback,” Pennington, 32, wrote to ABC News. “So many fellow moms and women have been saying they actually met a best friend in Target! ...I’ve also had women comment that they have a hard time meeting mom friends and this might be an option for them to meet a friend because they are always in Target, too!” So far, she has no leads on the woman she thinks could be her new BMFF, but she’s still hopeful.
App Uses Augmented Reality To Find You Matches
There’s a new dating app hitting the scene - and it’s using some crazy technology to find you matches. FlirtAR (pronounced like flirter) is an app that tells you with little bubbles of people’s faces who exactly is around you at that exact moment in real time. If you move your phone around your area, more bubbles of potential matches pop up.
All you have to do is click on their bubble and like their profile. If they like you back, you can start chatting. And this is where things get interesting – if they like you back, you pretty much decide then and there if you’re going to meet up with the person. You know – since you’re basically in the same place at the same time anyway. They’re starting by launching the app in LA.
And don’t worry - the app lets you decide when you can be liked or not. You wouldn’t want to be at the grocery store in your sweats getting seen by dating app strangers.

Stopped by Red Robin for a late lunch and couldn't miss you. You were the tallest waitress and absolutely gorgeous. Both my wife and I could not take our eyes off you and at one point my wife wanted to ask you a question but you were busy working. when we were leaving you were kidding with what looked like the manger about being friends tell me where you would become friends so we know it was you.
Saturday Night - w4m (Waupaca)
What the hell, dude? You have my number. I have terrible handwriting, but you have my number. I think you're fun and adventurous and funny. I enjoyed your company, and you made it very clear that you enjoyed mine. I'm sooo sorry I didn't go home with you. No, not really. I guess I just prefer to know someone for more than 4 hours... It's a real bummer I haven't heard from you because I genuinely wanted to see you again.
Sincerely, a damn good catch
Pregnant woman who's sick of f*ck boys & had her bike stolen today - m4w
I saw you after community lunch today around noon, I had asked if you had a cigarette and you told me you just bummed the one you were smoking. You were pissed cuz someone stole your bike while you were inside and were looking for cameras in the lot. You walked away bitching about fuck boys following you home all the time and said you want no one following you home much less coming over trying to take advantage of a pregnant woman.
