I wasn't focused on the magnitude of your thinking about yourself, just theorizing the agonizings you described experiencing while participating in Facebook were perhaps less rooted in anything about Facebook itself than in the act/process/practice of self focus, regardless the magnitude.
I don't doubt Facebook has done plenty of psychological homework, and will leverage whatever improves revenue regardless how it might, for example, tempt increased selve focus – which tends to be in the direction opposite any “enlightenment” wherein said “lightening” is of/from the burden of “self”.
