If you have better things to do in your life than posting new statuses or uploading pictures on social networking sites like Facebook, then you can be considered a “psychopath”.

Facebook has become such an important aspect in people’s lives, that increasing number of employers, and even some psychologists, believe people who aren’t on social networking sites, could be insane.

German magazine Der Taggspiegel went so far as to point out that accused Dark Knight shooter James Holmes and Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik have common ground in their lack of Facebook profiles.

Also, reports that human resources departments across the country are becoming more wary of young job candidates who don’t use the site.

Bosses believe that a lack of Facebook could mean the applicant’s account could be so full of red flags that it had to be deleted.

Some psychologists believe that using Facebook has become a sign of having a healthy social network.
