    So does anyone want to actually discuss the OP? or does everyone just agree with it?

    I don't know about the study of "victim signalling" (though I've always believed the left has made victimhood a virtue), but the author of the article pretty much summed up social media in general with this...

    Virtue signalers are, essentially, phonies and showoffs—folks who adopt opinions and postures solely to garner praise and sympathy or whose good deeds are tainted by their need for everyone to see just how good they are.
    This is the exemplification of the political left (ESPECIALLY celebrities) and social media.

    It sounds reasonable. I don't know much about social media to compare with.

    I suppose discussion boards such as this are a form of social media but they do not have the reach of Twitter and FB and they are not [at least as far as I am aware] financed by advertising.

    It sounds like an interesting study though it remains behind a pay wall, and so we're kinda only getting it second-hand via the article in Reason. That being said I think it does seem plausible as an indicator narcissistic traits. However like the authors I would stress that this study cannot be used to denigrate people who claim they've been victims of injustice.
