Compared to cases in the past, instances of borderline personality disorder currently appear to be less severe. Meanwhile, Social Networking Services (SNSs) have become popular among young people and their use affects the lifestyles of both those suffering from mental disorders and those who are not. In this article, two case reports are used to outline the strong affinity that people with borderline personality disorder have with SNSs. In particular, SNSs were found to buffer clashes of feelings among users, provide abundant objects on which users can depend, and provide a space for self-display. While these features may have positive effects on borderline personality disorder, we should also be careful about the negative effects, such as Internet addiction and sexting. Further case reports and research in the relationships between SNSs and borderline personality disorder are needed to ascertain whether SNSs are beneficial for borderline personality disorder treatment.
