Analysis – Are you Addicted to facebook?

Either a narcissist or an incessant attention seeker. if you are one of those people who spend insanely long hours on Facebook and ridiculously mundane status updates every ten minutes, then you just might display the same narcissistic tendencies in real life also.

Researchers at York University examined the connection between Facebook activity and real-world personality traits in a study called “Self-Presentation 2.0: Narcissism and Self-Esteem on Facebook.”

The Google Movie – Would you go and watch it?

Although I really wish that the Movie’dom does not suffer from a social media overkill within this year, but my fears might come true with list of movies which have lined up till now. A movie on Twitter and then on Facebook was already announced earlier, but now joining the team is a movie on Google. Now what lies in store for these movies is still unpredictable but they are creating quite a stir in the social media circle.

Following a series of parodies and spoofs on Facebook and Twitter, comes the turn of Google. But this time it’s for real! The movie is an adaptation of the book Googled: The End of the World As We Know It”, by Ken Auletta The book will be used as an outline for the feature film about the rise of the popular internet search engine.
