When Barbara Swafford asked me to do a follow-up guest post on narcissism for her site, Observation Mountain, we marveled that the first one (What is Narcissism and How Can You Spot a Narcissist?) is still a top referrer of visitors to PassingThru. This tells us more than ever, people are looking for answers on how to deal with those who exhibit narcissistic behaviors and create problems for others. It’s possible that social media is responsible for this increase, as Facebook and Twitter in particular appear to be virtual playgrounds within which online emotional predators can easily operate.
My co-author, Lori Hoeck, and I never envisioned the on-going success of our e-book, The Narcissist: A User’s Guide, which is still being downloaded on a daily basis, even though it is almost two years old (click here for a preview of the book). I was happy to respond to Barbara’s request for a timely update on how social media can impact these complicated and frustrating relationships with this: Facebook – The New Playground for Narcissists.
