Selfies are definitely a part of our generation now. It is crazy to think that before a couple of years ago, we had never heard of the word ‘selfie,’ and now it is a common used word used by almost everyone who owns a phone or camera. It is not just the younger generation that is about taking selfies, though. Adults now are even saying “lets take a selfie”.
I am not the biggest person on taking selfies by myself, but I do like to take them with other people. When and if I take a selfie, I kind of feel weird like people are judging me because I’m taking a picture by myself and someone I don’t see could be watching me awkwardly smiling at my camera. I do like taking selfies with a filter on them, especially on Snapchat because those are usually just being sent to certain people and are not for everyone to see. I like taking selfies with other people, though because you aren’t the only one in the picture. You have your friends or family with you so it’s a group selfie rather than a selfie by yourself. Those who take a lot of selfies of themself I feel have confidence and feel good about themself because no one really wants to put a selfie up if they look like they just woke up from a nap. People like to post selfies when they look good. People who put selfie after selfie up on Instagram I think are annoying, though. No offense, but is it necessary to post a selfie of yourself on social media every single day? Sometimes I think those people can be conceded in themselves.
Reading the MediaPost article, I did agree on how it said, “men who take a lot of selfies were more likely to display traits linked to narcissism.” I think that is not just for men though, but for women too. If you think you look good, the probability of you taking a selfie by yourself is probably high more likely.
