    I sure do. It's just a lot of people looking for attention
    It's like some stupid contest to see how many likes somebody can get for a photo or comment. So lame.
    It seems like small unimportant groups of people or cliques who just use it for all its worth because in the real world they wouldn't even be noticed.
    I can understand why someone like Madonna or Nicole Kidman
    would use it and abuse it with so many fans..
    At least Madonna actually posts her own messages.
    Nicole Kidman seems to have some kind of robot servant posting the stupidest comments on life and philosophy all day like:
    Life is a mirror and I see my faults through it.
    Or "Acting is an adventure and I'm proud to take risks"..
    Just stupid bullshit like that all day.
    People just want to be adored it seems how boring

    Is Facebook narcissistic? I don't think so, I think it's more properly characterized as a piece of technology or a means. Just like the atomic bomb, technology (usually) is neither inherently good or evil, humble or narcissistic.

    Do I think the Facebook has a propensity to open up and expose narcissistic personalities and traits in certain or many people? Yes. The technology is often abused in the very manner you describe.

    Do I think there's a difference between celebrity accounts (whether personally managed or managed by handlers) and 'normal' people accounts? Yes. The former is simply social media to brand and sell a product, and you SHOULD expect that BS dribble. If in the latter you find sappy quotes and BS, prune your "friend" list. I have FB, and I use it mainly to keep track of friend's birthdays, major life events, and to occassionally coordinate parties, dinners, or other social functions (maybe once every few months?).

    But I totally see what you're saying about the sappy quotes and constant pics of children, dogs and dinner. After a few narcissistic shots, get over yourself icon_cool.gif

    also it seems people are using some kind of app that makes your pics look better because some guys look model-like in their pics and when I saw some of them at pride they looked lame

    pazkilimanjaro saidAlmost ALL of these social networking sites are narcissistic or programmed to function that way. Then to make it worse, people are nosey too so they want you to be like that where you're advertising your business and putting faces, names, places and etc etc. Shit is not cool. That's why I don't even get involved with those sites like that. MySpace was more than enough for me.
    hahaha! You fell into my trap
    Just hearing the word "narcissistic" makes you go loco!
    But I agree with you..Twitter is even worse so fucking stupid..

    You're an idiot dude. Most Americans under the age of 35 have a Facebook account.

    You saying nobody uses it anymore is a gross over statement. Stop trying to make yourself look cool when you're here on RJ...

    And is Facebook narcissistic? Over course it is. It's a marketing tool for our selves. Only the best pictures, updates, and check ins get posted.

    We are all guilty of it if we have any social media profile. RJ included.

    You're kinda right. I've had a Fb since I was a sophomore in HS. Since then most of my old HS "friends" became less and less active while the 35+ y/o crowd became more and more active.
    Tbh they were just stubborn about it at first. The older generations liked to complain about the younger generations being narcissistic & hooked to their smart phones and gadgets around 2010. Fast forward 5 years and I look around the city and see middle age folks glued to the latest technologies.

    I only recently joined FB. Basically, it comes down to..

    - Baby pics, all day, everyday.
    - Inspirational quotes superimposed on beautiful scenery.
    - Results from silly quizzes.
    - Getting tagged in random news articles.
    - Invitations to Like a page/business.
    - Vacation selfies.
    - First World Problem ranting.

    But honestly, I don't mind at all. I was able to reconnect with a lot of old friends and it's nice to see where they're at in life right now. And as adults, we all have different/busy schedules. So it makes it easier to stay in touch with the people you actually care about.

    FB is like many other things in life.. It is what you make of it.

    If your friend list consists of hundreds of people you hardly know, well then you're the cause of your own problem.

    I'm also on Instagram and Snapchat, mainly to keep in touch with some younger family members. icon_lol.gif

    At a Neurological Level, Narcissists Are Needy

    A good read just in

    We all know a narcissist or two — the often-annoying colleagues, friends, and family members who seem to be constantly talking about themselves and touting their own achievements. In some ways, these characters are a paradox. They seem to be in love with themselves — and when they’re asked in questionnaires, they claim to have very high self-esteem — but their behavior poses an obvious question: If you were genuinely happy with yourself, why would you feel the need to constantly boast and seek admiration from others?

    basically.... narcissists are lonely people that basically are desperate for love because they're insecure as fuck with themselves. i know this because i think someone in my family is one. icon_neutral.gif they basically NEED attention every single second and that shit is annoying as fuck. in their case, think they're narcissism is pathological unlike the wannabe narcissists.

    Facebook is a big popularity contest. I know someone who dedicates one hour everyday to click " like" on all his/her friends' new posts no matter how lame they are just so that others will " like" his/her posts too.
