Facebook Can Turn Kids Into Narcissists
Facebook can turn kids into narcissists and lead to health complications, a California psychologist said in Washington.
Larry Rosen, a psychologist at Cal State Dominguez Hills, presented a conference paper on the potential harm the hugely popular social networking site can have on children, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Rosen, who has been studying the effects of technology on people for more than two decades, said that teens who use technologies, like video games and the internet, were more likely to have stomachaches, sleeping problems, anxiety and depression.
