Facebook users 'are insecure, narcissistic and have low self-esteem'
Using Facebook is the online equivalent of staring at yourself in the mirror, according to a study.
Those who spent more time updating their profile on the social networking site were more likely to be narcissists, said researchers.
Facebook provides an ideal setting for narcissists to monitor their appearance and how many ‘friends’ they have, the study said, as it allows them to thrive on ‘shallow’ relationships while avoiding genuine warmth and empathy.

Are you kidding? You really believe this study?
I may be a "wacko liberal" but I sure as hell don't fall for things as easily as you seem to.

The study is flawed and in my gorgeous opinion it does not apply to us ATSers.

This study says that people who frequent Facebook are shallow narcissists who love looking at themselves in the mirror.
