Study link­ing so­cial me­dia to nar­cis­sism

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - FRONT PAGE -

Ex­ces­sive use of so­cial me­dia – in par­tic­u­lar the post­ing of im­ages and self­ies – has been linked to a sub­se­quent in­crease in nar­cis­sism, re­search has found.

The study au­thors say their find­ings could mean up to a fifth of the pop­u­la­tion may be at risk of de­vel­op­ing such nar­cis­sis­tic traits as­so­ci­ated with their ex­ces­sive vis­ual so­cial me­dia use.

The re­searchers are from Swansea and Mi­lan uni­ver­si­ties.
