Facebook Profiles And Narcissism

This is amazingly timely.  According to a new study, there is a link between the number of “friends” you have on Facebook and how narcissistic you are. Specifically, the study states, “the researchers found that the number of Facebook friends and wallposts that individuals have on their profile pages correlates with narcissism. Narcissists are also more likely to choose glamorous, self-promoting pictures for their main profile photos, she said, while others are more likely to use snapshots.”

So why is this timely, you might ask?  Well, just yesterday I wrote about the need to focus on quality instead of quantity when it comes to things like Facebook. I’m totally on to something 🙂
