Wait. You’re not on Facebook? What kind of psychopath are you?

According to the Daily Mail in London, some psychologists are calling nonusers of the social-networking site “suspicious” or even dangerous, and some human resource departments are passing on non-Facebook users because of concerns that scandalous material may have been deleted. 

The German magazine Der Taggspiegel even drew attention to the fact that neither James Holmes, the accused Aurora, Colorado, movie-theater murderer, nor Anders Behring Breivik, the man behind last year’s mass murder in Norway, had a Facebook profile, the newspaper reports.
