Competitive Narcissism

Someone on a mailing list I'm on asserted that MySpace and Facebook are, both, equally narcissistic, and using them shows one to be a narcissist, more so than maintaining any kind of blog. Really? Truly?

Poll #1079747 All about the most important person in the whole world

Using which of these sites shows the greatest narcissism? (Check all that are equally so.)

MySpace
3(12.5%)
Facebook
0(0.0%)
Any blog site, including LiveJournal
3(12.5%)
A personal homepage
1(4.2%)
It depends on one's security settings.
6(25.0%)
Any site for posting personal information online that I don't use.
2(8.3%)


I'm also a little confounded by the presumption of the virtuousness of online modesty inherent in the statement, whose author notes he does have a blog himself. By extrapolation, the most virtuous of online users are those who never leave a trace of themselves behind.
