I’m no narcissist, but who is that handsome guy in the mirror?

twitterToday’s college students are so narcissistic that they believe that they are the most narcissistic generation ever.

That’s what a recent study out of San Diego State said. The study found that social networking sites are causing students to become self-promoters and spend more time seeking attention.

From USA Today:


More than half (57%) said their peers used social networking sites such as MySpace, Facebook and Twitter for self-promotion, narcissism and attention-seeking. And 92% said they used MySpace or Facebook regularly. Two-thirds said their generation was more self-promoting, narcissistic, overconfident and attention-seeking than others.

In the business world the same behavior, which study calls narcissism in college students, is called marketing. BizSense ran a series earlier in the summer about how marketing professionals are using social media to promote businesses. Read more here.
