I recently came across this “infographic” making the connection between social media and the personality disorder, “narcissism.” It’s a creative, graphical way of making an argument against a set of technologies. No doubt, social media has changed our own ways of thinking of ourselves. This may be especially powerful for children growing up with this media, and may have long-term effects on our own human evolution if we continue at it (an example of technogenesis). Has this been a largely pathological change, as this info graphic claims, or is it beneficial in some way? Is its evidence persuasive?
