    ""Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google Plus, Vine … all great—just not all the time. In fact, researchers have found that our obsession with social media is becoming less about connecting with others and more about vanity, egocentricity and self-promotion. We spoke with Elliot Panek and Sara Konrath, lead researchers for a University of Michigan study linking social media and narcissism. Read on to find out if you—or someone you know—is a social media narcissist.""

    You're constantly updating your profile picture. Instead of choosing a profile photo that illustrates the close relationships you may have with friends and family, you choose ones that say, "I'm pretty and fun!" Research also finds that you choose profile photos that might "maximize the possibility of gaining admiration." Translation: You pick the one you think will get the most "likes."

    I am proud to say I don't do twitter, FB, Vine etc. Dawgsaloon is my only vice. (one in a while abovetopsecret.com but the mods have no sense of humor over there)

    I do twitter because three of my real life friends are on there, and we have many laughs.

    As for the profile pic? I think my springer spaniel may be a narcissist.

    "Social Media Narcissist", or simply "Asshole" to those who like to cut though the obfuscation.

    Do you think that we would think she was pretty if we knew NOTHING about her? I can't tell anymore.

    When they first started dating, I used to think she was pretty and sweet.
    Now, I have no idea what I was thinking. None. She is not, nor ever was, "pretty"

    And you know how I feel about gold diggers who don't work.
