New study: Facebook users are self-centered and uncaring

Still not convinced of the insulating and alienating effects of electronic mediation?

A new study finds social network usage is linked to increased narcissism (duh!) and “less nuanced” moral reasoning.  Of course this is correlational so we can’t conclude that Facebook use actually makes people narcissists.  Consumer society probably does that.  Facebook is just a convenient outlet for the more amoral and self-focused among us.
