Social Media has led to an increase in narcissism, and that’s a good thing.
Or, so says some new research, neatly animated by Brain Craft in the video below.
The theory is that as we look at ourselves, it makes us better people. Using social media to do that can actually re-define our personality, behaviour and future actions.
Who hasn’t Googled their own name to see the search results, or looked back over a previous nights tweets and Facebook status updates and decided that actually they weren’t that appropriate after all.
If social media helps us to reflect who we are, or how we want to be perceived, that means self censorship/correction and that can lead to behaviour change.
We all want to be better people, right?
