A new study—the first to look at social media’s effect on memory—suggests posting personal experiences on social media makes those events much easier to recall. “If people want to remember personal experiences, the best way is to put them online,” said Qi Wang, the lead author of the study and professor of human development in the College of Human Ecology.
