Narcissism is a clinical condition that describes people who have a hunger for respect, a sense of being justified, and usually do not have empathy. People who are diagnosed as narcissists may also feel like they are better and more deserving than others, and very narcissistic people often acknowledge that they are even more self-centered.
Researchers from Swansea University and the University of Milan studied how the personality of 74 participants aged 18 to 34 years changed in four months.

"There are suggestions for the links between narcissism and the use of visual publications on social media like Facebook, but it was not known to this study whether Narcissists use this form of social media more or less, or the use of such platforms with the continued growth of narcissism is associated," said the professor Phil Reed from the Department of Psychology at the University of Swansea, who led the study.
"If we take a sample as a representative of the population, for whom there is no reason to doubt, this means that in about 20 percent of people there can be such narcissistic attributes associated with their excessive visual use in the media."
