    • 1. GENERATION ME Samantha Russell FILM260
    • 2. Are todays young people more narcissistic than previous generations?
    • 3. With the explosion of social media websites, it has become nearly impossible for an individual to not make an online profile
    • 4. Keeping in touch with friends and family, used for business or pleasure, social media websites are a bandwagon everyone has hopped onto
    • 5. Easily accessible on any smart phone, tablet, or computer, you are constantly connected wherever you go
    • 6. So, why have we be labeled ‘generation me’, and the most narcissistic generation to date?
    • 7. “Can we pin the tail on Mark Zuckerburg and the advent of Facebook?”- Huffington Post
    • 8. Being bombarded by social media sites asking us for personal details about our lives, current relationship status, the school we attend, amongst many other things triggers the narcissistic behavior to talk about ourselves, via updating our online profiles
    • 9. Selfies Oversharing Online Identity Photo tagging Social Proof Status Updates Identity Theft Personal Ebranding What makes us Narcissistic…
    • 10. “Incidence for narcissistic personality is nearly 3 times as high for people in their 20’s as for the generation that is now 65 and over”- Time Magazine
    • 11. Being so self involved can lead to loneliness. The constant need to keep on top of our online profiles, adding new friends, liking pages and photos, is an obsession with limited rewarding aspects
    • 12. …has taken on a superficial connotation. It defines our thirst for social media acceptance
    • 13. “We are so consumed by the number of likes we rack up on any given post, we often go as far as to skip the wait and outright ask people to like our posts.”- Elite Daily
    • 14. “Getting under 11 likes on an Instagram post is like going to prom without a date… it’s social media suicide”- Elite Daily At the end of the day, sure, you got 25 likes on a selfie posted online…but just because you get the most likes and emoticon hearts doesn’t mean you’re the most liked person. But the popularity your photo brought in enables a narcissistic feeling of importance, which triggers us to post more often about ourselves
    • 15. Studies pertaining to narcissistic behavior have revealed that those individuals that score higher on the questionnaire tend to have more friends on Facebook, tag themselves in more photos, and update their status’ more frequently - Huffington Post
    • 16. The problem with the rise in social networking is that people create unrealistic portraits of themselves; adding only the most attractive selfies, updating status’ when they’re doing something interesting, and keeping count of the likes received on the photo just uploaded
    • 17. Narcissism is a primary factor of using social networking sites because people believe that other’s are interested and care about what they’re doing, what they’re eating, who they’re with, and what they look like
    • 18. When we look at the 750 Facebook friends we may have…how many of them do you actually keep in touch with? Which ones are acquaintances versus real friends? It’s a strange concept to think that a large portion of the ‘friends’ we have on Facebook, we don’t really know
    • 19. But social media sites are not all to blame, studies have shown that millennial babies tend to be more focused on being wealthy, successful, and independent. We are all narcissistic to some capacity, having self esteem and feeling good about yourself are traits of narcissism. However, it is social networking sites that exaggerates the egotistical quality within ourselves
    • 20. Social networking has become apart of us that we carry around and use every single day, no wonder there has been a general increase in narcissism amongst our generation
