Are you one of the 400 million or so people around the world who use Facebook? If you are, Facebook is tracking your status updates as part of a Gross National Happiness Index. It's designed to gauge the overall happiness of the country that you live in. So what do you think? Can you distill a nation's happiness from Facebook status updates? How well do your own status updates reflect your true state of mind? (Also, we'd love to see some of your favourite status updates!)
