Okay, I will go crazy if I don't get it off my chest. What is with the selfie mania that seems to be going on? Or is it just me? I do get it that some of us love to flaunt our glamorous/ cool selfies. But what is it with the pathetic selfies that I see
sometimes mostly on Facebook?
According to Wikipedia, "A selfie is a self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. Selfies are often shared on social networking services such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Tumblr. They are often casual, and are typically taken either with a camera held at arm's length or in a mirror."
And this what Google had to tell me - "Occasional selfies are acceptable, but posting a new picture of yourself everyday isn't necessary." Google, I couldn't possibly agree with you more on this one.
The other day, I saw this girl on my friends list (don't ask me how she ended up there, long story) has posted this weird selfie. Where she looks somewhere between confused/ weird/ constipated. And for this she gets a lot of likes and few comments!
I would get it if it was a nice click or even an average selfie. But this one was downright oh-I'm-so-trying-to-be-cool kind of a selfie. What is it with people? Can't they just pose normally for one? Or even smiling for it would not have looked half as bad as it did.
I'm sure she is a friendly girl and has a lot of friends. But selfies like these are simply taking things a bit too far and testing the patience of those viewing it.
Oh yes, I can imagine what you are thinking. Why don't I just remove her from my list? But sometimes when I feel down, I take her profile, go through her selfies and remind myself that life could actually be a lot worse.
P.S. This is just my opinion and I have nothing against selfies in general. Well, as long as it doesn't hurt my eyes.
P.P.S. I'm generally not this rude, but this one was simply asking for it.
