Narcissist or Psychopath: What Is Social Media Is Doing To Us?

what is social media doing to usAs more and more of us spend our days looking at a screen and obsessively checking social media sites, experts are beginning to worry about our mental health.  On the heels of much discussion about internet addiction (recently added to an appendix in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic Statistical Manual), now comes some more dire news.

A new University of Michigan study claims to have found a link between narcissism and social media use. In the study, they found that college age kids post mostly to twitter with great frequency, while older adults usually post multiple times on Facebook.
