Might as well admit it - selfies are now an integrated part of our culture. Almost everyone seems to do it, whether it is of themselves only or them and someone else or others. A new song entitled "Selfie" is blowing up - so move over Rebecca Black. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdemFfbS5H0 Anyway, I was trying to look at selfies in a positive way. I will use this example....There is a smart woman on my Facebook who is well respected. She takes selfies with her son all the time and posts them. I'm a parent too and proud of my child so I can see why she wants to do them. They are nice pictures that I would want of myself and my child. On the other hand, I feel like it takes away from the actual life moment going on, and makes it "fake". That it is too hard for people to live and remain in the moment and experience the life that is going on without the new and expected urge to share it. And who are you sharing it with really? Most of the people you are sharing it with are in fact distant and are an "imaginary relationship" which do not have any real or effectual influence on your life. Then there are constant selfie taking people who what to show the world how pretty or buff they are for the most part. I understand this if the moment was of some significance, for example, you cut off your long hair or something like that. Otherwise, those can get very annoying. Anyway, seems like the selfie is here to stay.
