Cambridge, MA — Ever wonder why some people feel the need to post everything that happens to them on social media sites, like Twitter or Facebook?
Harvard researchers might have an explanation-- it makes them feel good!
They found when people share information about themselves, it activates a sensation of pleasure in the brain.
Researchers say it's the same pleasure we get when having sex, just to a different degree.
