How many friends do you have on Facebook?

Interesting article for all your Facebook whores..

Quote:
How Many Facebook Friends Do You Have? Study Links Narcissism and Facebook Activity

ABC News - For the average narcissist, Facebook is tool that may promote anti-social behavior.

Facebook "offers a gateway for hundreds of shallow relationships and emotionally detached communication," according to study by Western Illinois University professor Christopher Carpenter.

The study was published this month in Personality and Individual Differences, the official journal of the International Society for the Study of Individual Differences.

In the study, Carpenter defined narcissism as "a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration and an exaggerated sense of self-importance," according to a press release from the university.

Using a Narcissistic Personality Inventory, Carpenter and his students surveyed 292 people - most of whom were college students - to measure "self-promoting" Facebook behavior, such as people posting status updates, their photos, updating profile information; as well as "anti-social behaviors," including seeking social support more than providing it, getting angry when others do not comment on status updates and retaliating against negative comments.

People who score higher on the inventory promoted themselves more on Facebook - by tagging themselves and updating their newsfeeds more frequently, and by having more friends on Facebook, according to a report in the Guardian newspaper.

The study concluded that grandiose exhibitionism correlated with anti-social behavior on Facebook. Self-esteem was negatively related to self-promotion and anti-social behaviors on the site.

"In general, the 'dark side' of Facebook requires more research in order to better understand Facebook's socially beneficial and harmful aspects in order to enhance the former and curtail the latter," Carpenter said.
Social media sites, particularly Facebook and Twitter, have long been criticized for being vehicles for meaningless relationships, and have recently been mentioned in connection with making bullying easier and more pervasive.

No way I'll ever sign up for Facebook. Employers (and potential employers) go looking for stuff on their employees or candidates, and the last thing I want them to read about is how much I love fucking overstuffed teddy bears and inflateable pool toys ... but perhaps I've said too much?

Then dont use your real name. Hell use your screen name here.


Have about 50 on mine. All of which I do actually know (either in person or from other web forums that I was on for years with them). I dont go adding everyone under the sun like a friend of mine does. He hit over 1000 a while ago. Pruned the people he doesnt know out and was down to 175-200. Now back up ot 500ish.


I also set my "wall" so only people in my friends lists can read or see it. Hell I dont even let my family in as friends.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

The ones who annoy me the most on facebook are chicks who write about every single instance of their day.

"Omg my 3 year old daughter is wearing my (whore) cloths, stilettos, and (ginormously over sized) sunglasses...isn't she so cute???"

Then there are those who need to boost their importance by checking in at every single airport they visit.

You better be nice to America or we will bring democracy to your country.

I heard that too. I was stunned. Part of my job involves system security, so I find this even more dumb. Not only would I say fuck that noise, if at any time during my interview process they'd ask me for information like that, I'll assume I am not getting the job, and I would walk out.

I disagree. How else will people know where to shop for her daughter for her 4th birthday:

I had a company I was interviewing with make me fill something out asking if I was on various social media sites and provide the name it was under, but didn't ask for the password.

I willingly gave it to them, because all they will see if me in a suit as my profile picture, everything else is blocked.

I would never give out my password though.

I have heard of some new thing that they call, over the shoulder profile review. They will make you log in and let you drive around your profile. Kind of creepy. I am sure a lawsuit will eventually come out of that.

This is a stretch and I'm too lazy to research it, but could you say no because they are asking you to do something illegal?

...I would think Facebook as something in their Terms and Conditions, which you have to agree to prior to signing up for the site, about giving out your password.

...Your prospective employer asking for this would require you to breach your contract with Facebook, which is an illegal activity.

...Maybe?

Yea, that could kind of work... but when you are looking for a job you will be willing to do a lot. Think of maybe a security job, for example.

I think they get around that by the over the shoulder thing. I have also heard of (you are asled to friend your supervisor thing too.)

That is true. If I were unemployed, I probably would turn over my password and hope for the best. Since I'm currently employed and can be picky, unless it's a dream job, I wouldn't do it.

It's not like I really even have anything to hide, it's just the invasion of privacy thing.

I also told my current boss I would never accept/add him on Facebook because I don't want him to know when I'm coming into work hungover. He agreed for the same reason

If you tell them you dont have a facebook page, and you dont use your real name, how could they find out? (Assuming you arent stupid enough to friend anyone you work with)
