Insights on SBS on Tuesday night. It was about narcissistic behaviours and the
role that modern culture, in particular social media such as facebook, youtube,
and blogs, can have on our tendency towards narcissism. They gave examples of
people who had multiple facebook and twitter accounts to “put themselves
out there” (where ever “there” is) and then there was a
discussion of whether this is narcissistic or not.
days previously I had begun to set a facebook page for the Country Life
Experiment. I have noticed that most blogs have a facebook page that goes with
them. I already kind of hated the idea of having a facebook page for the blog,
because it somehow seems conceited to set up your own page. After watching the
program, I had a bit of an internal debate about whether to continue.
But then so many people who I don’t know personally have been kind enough to
stop by my blog and to comment, so I thought it would be great to be able to
connect more with them. At the same time, I thought it would be nice of me to
give my friends from my personal page a break. This way they don’t have to be
subject to Country Life Experiment stuff if they don’t particularly care for
it is… the official unveiling of my new facebook page. If you’re a regular here
(or if this is your first visit)I would love it if you would follow me. I
promise I am not narcissistic.
