    But life is meant to be shared with one another in person.

    When I was on facebook a lot, I found that my focus became pictures. Getting a good picture. The enjoyment of the moment of whatever I was doing, alone or with family, was completely usurped by wondering how this great picture would be viewed by my friends and others....It went beyond mere sharing into self-indulgence. There is just a fine line between connecting with others and prostelytizing oneself....

    Perhaps many don't fall prey to this. But social media sites are prime conduits for those who do. Just like casinos pull in gamblers.

    I also meant narcissism in more general terms regarding our society. One cannot see popular media without being inundated with the reality of that.

    To me it depends on the extent of what you're doing if you're sharing and posting every detail of your life then it becomes a problem. Facebook in of itself is pretty impersonal it's not like you have family that came over and you're sharing pictures you had. There is no sense of belonging really just people advertising themselves to the public.

    It's just one of those bastardized words that everyone uses. I don't think ppl really mean to say that others have this horrible mental illness. Though wiki (i know great source) states that it's generally used in a variety of ways (doesn't neccesarily have to be DSM material).

    It is sharing life directly, "Hey, look at this cool picture I took" it isn't really self indulgence either, you want others to share and experience through your photo. I know where you are coming from, I just think it is a balance between two worlds.
