Post Social Networks: Look At Me 
http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/2009-08-24-narcissism-young_N.htm

Studies suggest that heavy participation in online social networks is moving a generation to a more narcissistic, attention seeking mode.

There's little question about it. Watch self posted videos or crowd behavior in today's young adults, and you see people behaving like movie stars or rock performers acknowledging throngs of worshippers following their every move. Rather goes without saying that the competition of millions of others vying for attention requires one to behave even more outrageously in order to stand out from the crowd. Might call it "Jackass Syndrome" for short.

Users on Facebook are generally calmer about this. MySpace basically encouraged it. The things some people do to their pages, I swear.
