Do you think the "selfie" craze has gotten out of hand?


Has social media made us more narcissistic as a society? Do you know of anyone who has more "selfie" photos on their Facebook page than photos taken of them by other people? Kim Kardashian has a (photography book) titled "Selfish" and it's a bestseller containing nothing but "selfies" of herself. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, and other sites have made it possible for average people to "promote themselves" to have hundreds, thousands, or millions of followers, views, or "friends". Does it seem like everyone is seeking their 15 minutes?

    Total agreement. I do happen to take better pictures of myself than other people do, but I only do it when I have to. I had real true friends when only rich people had computers it was so much fun. everybody is scared of each other now. and prejudice

    Do you think "selfies" and the Internet go hand in hand?

    If there was no Internet or way to (share) the photos without physically handing them to someone would there be as many selfies taken?

    Digital pictures and the Internet are connected. :)
