"Narcissism on Facebook: Self-promotional and Anti-social Behavior" "Facebook's Dark Side" http://j.mp/GzN4WX (Science Daily) "Now, Carpenter is getting worldwide news coverage for his study of the "dark side," but on the timely subject of Facebook. Carpenter's study, "Narcissism on Facebook: Self-promotional and Anti-social Behavior," is published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences." - - - Interestingly, you don't really see this kind of pattern on Google+, which overall is much more oriented toward meeting new people and group discussions, rather than dwelling on "me" and the past. This is yet another reason why it seems wrongheaded to directly compare Facebook and Google+ as if they are simply direct competitors for the same user experience -- they're not. --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (firstname.lastname@example.org): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org Founder: - Data Wisdom Explorers League: http://www.dwel.org - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - Global Coalition for Transparent Internet Performance: http://www.gctip.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy Lauren's Blog: http://lauren.vortex.com Google+: http://vortex.com/g+lauren / Twitter: http://vortex.com/t-lauren Tel: +1 (818) 225-2800 / Skype: vortex.com _______________________________________________ nnsquad mailing list http://lists.nnsquad.org/mailman/listinfo/nnsquad
