Best Facebook Pages for Self Discovery

How some of us fall in love

Among all the social media sites around, Facebook is my favorite. It might be because I have been delving deeper into the jungle that FB is through the ages. In my quest, I did find some amazing pages and communities there. While bloggers flock around twitter, I haven’t quite gotten the hang of twitter and I can’t get enough of Facebook. So I decided to compile the best pages that happened to me on Facebook.

If you are a reader, a thinker (overthinker), an introvert or if you are always in awe of mind’s weird ways, you will be able to relate to this list.

  1. Literature (Reading is Sexy)

    The name has it all. They put up quotes and poems. Some of them are on repeat mode, yet you cannot really get annoyed. Because, how much can we remember? Even if we do, we can never have enough of certain quotes, poems. Pablo Neruda, Charles Bukowski are some of the people who have created some amazing stuff that you could read over and over again. The page is about such things. Here is a glimpse of one of their posts.

2. Beautiful Minds  –

We need more beautiful minds like these to curate all those quotes and inspiring videos. About themselves, they say the quotes they post are to inspire people to think. They give a spark that could grow into a fire and spread from minds to minds. Here is a video from this page that would stay with me for a while. I urge you, please do watch it. Click the link. Click it!

3. The Mind’s Journal –

Their website has articles about thoughts and the mind that makes them. These articles help you know yourself better. They could be written by someone just like you or someone with an elevated mindset, a more experienced soul who could help you walk through your situation. As I had mentioned earlier, a spark is enough to make you think, to change you, to know yourself better. If that is what you are looking for, this is the place.

Here is a glimpse of the article from the page and here is the link

4. The Idealist –

The page dwells on ideas and so the cover pic says:Image may contain: one or more people and text

5. Berlin Artparasites –

A magazine that expresses ideas and emotions through art, this is one whacky place with whackier concepts. Their storytelling have unique pictures and write-ups that make us think. I have noticed that the artwork most of the times make no sense on their own. But with the write-ups, they just blow our minds away!


6. The Mind of an Introvert –

Ah again! It is all there in the name. This is a personal blog with write-ups and memes about introverts; some their own, some they found. I had a tough time choosing just one meme/quote to put up here! 😀 I wouldn’t say this was the best. They are all amazing people!

7. Rantings of a beautiful Mind –

Another mind boggling area that sometimes leave me spell bound!

8. Spirit Science –

Dealing with the science of spirit, this page comes up with articles on meditation, concepts such as flower child, Indigo child, Rainbow child, whether you or anyone around you are empaths, HSP or narcissists and so on. Like other pages we discussed earlier, this one helps you delve into yourself and understand your own personality.

9. WordPorn –

Ah well! Most of the booklovers know about this. Like Literature (Reading is Sexy), this one discusses authors and their works of art. They share quotes and poems which are soul stirring.


10. Love What Really Matters –

This is one soulful page that shares experiences of people. It discusses Love, not just between couples, but love in every form. It makes us think from others’ viewpoints, it makes us happy that humanity is in fact still very much there. These is a page with stories of real people like you and me! And sometimes about dogs too. Real, supercute dogs 🙂

11. Open Letters That Matter

Letters to him, to her, to yourself, to your body, to someone who ruined you, someone who stuck through the storm and many more. There are umpteen letters there and many of them will strike a chord in you. You will be able to relate to some, you’d feel sorry for some, you might even realise that you were an oppressor unknowingly, at some point. They are open letters. They matter.

Facebook is one vast universe of ideas, opinions and thoughts that I know there are many more people and pages waiting to be discovered. This isn’t an exhaustive list. If you could relate to all these pages and if you know more like these, do let me know through the comments. And do share this post if you feel more people need to know about these virtual places of solace.

PS – All the images in this post, have been taken from the respective facebook pages. Had to upload the images since the embed wasn’t working well on wordpress. A Few Handpicked Things do not claim ownership to any of those.

    Ranjini, this post is a treasure trove!! I am not very adept with SM in general and though I adore the beautiful quotes I receive on fwds, I never really thought to follow them myself. Okay, now I am going to follow all the leads you’ve helpfully supplied here…thanks much!

    1. Ranjini

      Awww… Thanks Kala. I am glad I ignited a spark here. Some of these pages, at times bring up quotes that makes you lose your mind. They make you think so much! I am sure you’ll love them. 🙂

      I am super glad you found something interesting from here 🙂 Thank you so much PH.

  3. Alok Singhal

    That’s a good list. I am not much of a reader except business and financial news or going through good sites/blogs in general.

    1. Ranjini

      Ah. Except word porn, literature etc many of them aren’t book related. They are mere quotes and sometimes blogs. But I’m not sure if the content will lure you 🙂

  4. kokilagupta

    Same with me like my all other friends who have preceded me! I was not aware of any of these groups except the wordporn that too, through a friend. Now, thanks to you I am going to check out EACH one of these! Plus, they all look interesting! Thanks for the share, Ranju! 🙂

    1. Ranjini

      Yayy! I thought most of the bloggers would like these pages. We are more or less like minded. I am glad you are getting to know most of these through me Kokila 🙂

    Indeed a good list but Social networking is to Facebook like photo-copying is to xerox. We live in this world where the once loved website has become a creeper.
