Abstract: Unlike previous studies done on Facebook, this present study examined narcissistic manifestations of an Asian adolescent sample in Facebook applications such as the “What’s on your mind” status update, profile picture, friends and photos. Participants aged 13 to 18 filled in self-report measures of narcissism, extraversion and a Facebook questionnaire created by the authors. Narcissism was found to predict over and above extraversion the frequency of status updates [∆R² = .02, ∆F(1, 251) = 5.03, p < .05] and self-ratings of profile pictures [∆F(1, 191) = 28.18, p < .01] but not the number of friends (β = .13, ns) and photos (β = -.07, ns). Implications of this study are discussed.
