Psychologist Christopher Moeller told the magazine that using Facebook has become a sign of having a healthy social network.

My view is quite the opposite!

Psychologists have noted that Holmes, along with several noted mass murderers, have lacked any real friends.

And the 500+ 'friends' people have on FB are all real friends?

The last thing I would want to do when meeting someone new is look at their inane comments on FB.

Re: No Facebook account could be the first sign that you are a psycho

OK... Here it is..... Just for the psychologists reading this.......
I don`t have a Facebook account.... Because...... I spend so much time on PlusNet.....
I am not on "Adult Friend finder"...... Because    See above...
I am not on "My Space "...... Because...... See above...
And according to the report..... Because I am not on any of the above.... I don`t have a real name...... !

I "could be" of a "certain age" as mentioned in the quote......... but ... I should be so lucky ! ! !  
And surely, it is a bit "thin" to suggest that you would only use your real name, in the above situation, IF you had any of the above accounts...... Doh!...

Then I must be a psychopath as I've never had one and greatly doubt I ever will

Re: No Facebook account could be the first sign that you are a psycho

Ridiculous to suggest that having or not having a facebook account defines anyone in any way.
If not having FB makes you a psyco then everone on the planet is either a psycho or an idiot (in my ever so humble opinion).
Since when was a facebook account ever proof of identity?

Re: No Facebook account could be the first sign that you are a psycho

I have and I haven't if that makes any sense.
I noticed the recent trend is, to get many free offers you have to "like" their FB page.
So it was quite handy to get a FB email "things you may have missed". Clicking on the link I found I had a FB account. Or rather someone had used one of my many emails (or made one up which matched by coincidence) to open an account.
So it was a simple matter to change the password and just use this for free offer stuff.
I found I have many "best friends" who I don't know (or have any intention of even saying hello to) but isn't that the way of FB anyway.
Only had one FB email requesting confirmation of an email change which of course I declined.
Does this mean I'm a split personality thieving psychopath? Smiley

Mmmmm
If that's what Psychologists say about people who don't use FB, what do they say about people who don't use the Internet?

Re: No Facebook account could be the first sign that you are a psycho

I have a Facebook account with 61 friends. The vast majority of those friends are relatives and the rest are people I know well and see most days.
Is it a question included in job interviews I wonder Undecided

Yeah because Facebook is the great Oracle of truth and honesty isn't it having just admitted 10% of its accounts are fakes Crazy
Anyone relying on it for some form of screening process is an idiot. This story is propaganda designed to get more people to sign up to it to prove themselves.. meanwhile the authorities and private companies gain access to the largest database on earth legally with no controls to stop them and bypassing every data protection law across the planet.
