Facebook can make you narcissistic
Facebook can harm our social behavior and make us antisocial, sarcastic manic. At least Dr. Larry Rosen says so.A recent study conducted by Dr. Larry shows that ‘Over Facebooking’ can cause lots of behavioral problems. In a talk named “Poke Me: How Social Networks Can Both Help and Harm Our Kids “ Dr. Larry Rosen pointed out that over Facebooking can cause-
              Narcissistic tendencies among teens and mania, aggression and other behavioral problems among young adults at Facebooking.
                    Daily overuse of media and technology has a negative effect on the health of all children, preteens and teenagers by making them more prone to anxiety.                                   And last of all can hamper your study by causing distraction. He said that studying while Facebook is open on their PC shows lower retention rate than normal.
Rosen presented this finding by conducting surveys on 1000 adolescents and 15 min of observation in act of study.  But not all study was negative. There is some positive side too. According to him introvert adolescents can improve socialism by interacting with online friends.
