I'm currently writing a critical essay, arguing individualism, narcissism and collectivism within an online society.

However I feel that the title I've come of up with for this essay just isn't critical? Should the title be more engaging and argue a quote, or a specific piece of theory, or is this title critical enough? Please see below:

"A critical examination of individualism, narcissism and collectivism within Facebook"

Many thanks :)

  • This is tough to answer. Can you define "critical" for your purposes? Why are you so concerned with the title and not the essay's content? Commented Oct 18, 2012 at 17:27
  • It is to provide critical analysis of the chosen online culture. Apparently the title is an indicator of the quality of content. I think I am on the right lines with the content though, so I suppose it's about the first impression. Commented Oct 19, 2012 at 10:36

I think your title is fine as a subtitle or a deck, but it needs something catchier to start with.

I Me Ours: A critical examination of individualism, narcissism and collectivism within Facebook

E Pluribus Farmville: A critical examination of individualism, narcissism and collectivism within Facebook

and so on. Puns, lyrics, movie titles, proverbs — go nuts.
