The FaceBook Egotists

A team of researchers from the University of Georgia has come to a conclusion that will undoubtedly turn the tech world on its side (ha): if you use Facebook to promote your lovely self, it shows through. Narcissists, or those psychologically defined as “excessively egotistical,” will inflate their profiles on the social network with more photos and massive friends lists.

Did we not already know that that was the case?  Unless half the contacts/friends on my facebook account really are meeting 10 – 20 new people who are truly worth counting as friends each week…; then it’s always been an ego massaging exercise.
