The information gleaned in the following several months will also help decide
whether or not to mandate the vaccine for children. Meanwhile, the actions taken by mayors,
governors, and regulators signal that they intend to wait until the FDA provides its full
approval for the shots. We should have a little more to work with when we get there.
Social Media fuels Narcissism in Young Adults
30121998Many people define narcissism as a preoccupation with one's physical
appearance or public persona. It is common for young adults to be described as narcissistic
because they are in the process of establishing their identity and figuring out who they are in
relation to other people. Subclinical narcissism affects more than 10% of people in their 20s,
according to (MacDonald, 2014). This is compounded by the fact that social media is also to
blame. This paper aims to demonstrate that media encourages narcissism in young adults.
One of the most common ways to describe narcissism is as "grandiose" or
"vulnerable" narcissism, in which one is overly sensitive to criticism and constantly seeks
reassurance (Kohut, 2013). They are more likely to become addicted to the drug because they
seek positive feedback online to control how they appear more easily than in person.
However, narcissistic egotists are also plagued by feelings of fear and uncertainty, despite
their online personalities of self-assurance. They are more likely to become addicted to it
because they tend to seek positive feedback online. They can more easily control their
appearance than in person, where they are less vulnerable to criticism. Grandiose narcissists,
despite their self-confident online persona, experience anxiety and insecurity. Posting on
Instagram and getting likes personally brightens my day and makes me feel better. This
boosts my ego.

Brubach deconstructs the illusions that have led us to tolerate and even encourage
narcissism: high self-esteem, low, that it's healthy, that narcissists are superior, and that you
must love yourself to love another. He describes narcissism as an illness that causes others to
suffer. "Narcissists brag and point fingers at others for their failures, place great value on
physical appearance, and buy status symbols to show off their wealth and power. They
constantly return the conversation to themselves, engage in dishonesty and cheating in order
to advance in their careers, and seek out "trophy partners" to enhance their public image.
In reaction to the rise of digital narcissism, social media platforms seek to move away
from stressing an idealized image. In early 2019, Instagram and the National Eating
Disorders Association partnered to establish the #ComeAsYouWere campaign, encouraging
people with eating disorders to share their stories. It was an essential part of the campaign to
encourage young people to tell their stories of accepting their bodies as they are. Instagram
began hiding likes on stories in the fall of 2019. While it's possible to see who liked your
posts, there is no way of comparing your likes to those of others. As a result, Instagram users
may begin to value their individual expression over social comparisons or the appearance of
popularity. Social media narcissism in young adults can be reversed by just deleting their
accounts. Social media addiction makes it difficult for people to delete their accounts.
However, young people can be taught how to use these devices healthily. For this, they need
to become more aware of their devices and apps and learn how to create a healthy connection
with them.
In conclusion, Social media narcissism is on the rise among young adults and can be
linked to anxiety and Narcissistic Personality Disorder. With the right treatment, young
people can learn to develop loving, caring relationships with their loved ones and the rest of
the world. Specialized treatment programs for young people help them develop the ability to

communicate openly and honestly with others, healthily manage their emotions and better
endure criticism and failure.
