Never saw this one coming.

According to a study, says the Los Angeles Times, women who post lots of photos of themselves on Facebook value their appearance and need attention:

There were differences between women and men. Overall, the results suggest that, compared with men, females identify more strongly with their image and appearance and use Facebook to compete for attention, said the lead author of the study, Michael A. Stefanone, an assistant professor of communications at the University of Buffalo.

The way all media constantly reinforce the ridiculous concept that women are somehow defined by their appearance, what more could we expect?
