Quote of the Day: Facebook and Narcissism

Technology Review has a great little piece, Where Is the Facebook for Old People?

Here’s the money quote:

Where is the online social networking equivalent of the Jitterbug phone? Easy to use, foolproof, and designed, more than anything, to keep you connected to loved ones. Perhaps that’s the problem with social networks in the first place: they reward display and narcissism, exactly the traits most closely associated with youth. Apparently genuine connection will have to wait for a more advanced technology.

Display and narcissism.   Great market!
