Women who post tons of pics of themselves on Facebook are competing for attention, value physical appearance.

FYI- People who do no brainer studies are seeking attention on the depiction that their studies are smart and factual, rather than obvious and stupid!

my best friend does this, but there always from nights out, and her friends (both boys, girls, and me) love that she does that because it reminds us of good times :)

i dunno if she does it for this reason too, but i love that she takes so many pictures.

of course attention seeking people post pictures of themselves, they search and require compliments

Sounds to me like an experiment done the wrong way `round. It`s like asking whether the tree has fallen when it has given off a loud crashing sound.

It`s amazing how no one values someone`s opinion anymore unless they have some sort of bull crap research finding to back it. Whatever happened to just plain smart people? Now you have to have a degree in order to say or sway anybody; even then the opinion backed by that degree is nothing more than a rehashing of what was already said by someone without a degree.

It`s not a fact unless somebody gets a $50,000 grant to say so.

Studies show that homo-sapiens with a rather rotund shape tend to consume fatty foods often.

The least you could`ve done was broken it to him easily

Perhaps with a song-and-dance routine or a decorated cake.

Uh, yeah! That`s why it`s called being "egotistical". (I have a similar disorder called "egotesticle". It`s not pretty.)

I finally made a facebook last week and I have yet to start feeling this "facebook addiction" thing. I get bored after five minutes at most. However it`s a good resource, there`s no doubt about that.
