SELFIES MAKEYOU SELFISH
Want to enrich your relationships in 2019? Cut down on those selfies! Not only can spending too much time on social media lead to depression and loneliness, now research shows that sharing too many images can boost narcissism. A study of 18- to 34-year-olds by scientists at Swansea and Milan Universities found users spent an average of three hours a day on social media and those who posted lots of selfies and other photos had a 25 per cent rise in narcissistic traits (such as self-importance and a lack of empathy). The researchers believe while getting ‘likes’ on social media can improve self-esteem, it can also feed the ego in a problematic way and lead to attention seeking. Those who shared words, not images, didn’t see this increase.
