I have a few acquaintences on Facebook that literally take pcs of themselves almost daily. Why? I finally hid them because I got tired of them in my news feed. These people are in their 30's, so it's not like they are kids...if they were, I'd chalk it up to immaturity.

Are they doing something like visiting somewhere or posing with their kids? Or, just portrait like photos?

There's a narcissist in every one of us. Nothing wrong with facebook. It's just a medium. Formerly, people lived in the stone age in terms of the Internet. The technology has evolved, so it's coming more to the outside.

No...pics of kids I get, but these are pics of themselves in the car, in the mirror, laying on the bed, etc. Just overkill I think.

Some ppl (like myself) hate having their picture taken. Some are the exact opposite. Its just something they choose to do, such as why you chose to use the phrase "ad nauseum" instead of using a smiley or translating it into modern english.

I just checked my facebook and have come to the realization that the only pictures I have of myself are ones in costume. Not sure if this is a good or bad thing.

As for people who post pictures of themselves constantly: Narcissism. That or they're models (which I have a few friends who indeed are models).
