A selfie should be used sparingly. Too many people think we want to see their photos taken daily doing whatever it is they're doing. If I wanted that... I'd follow you around all day. I don't need to see the entire birthday party I missed or the line at the movie you went to. Nope, I don't want to see your dinner before you ate it either. There are a few fun occasions where someone can post a series of selfies that serve to entertain though. Kelly Roberts recently ran the New York City Half Marathon and decided to make it more fun by taking a selfie each mile with a "hottie" nearby. It was a fun way to chronicle her experience and capture the candid moments. This was a rare instance when I did want to see 13 photos of someone I don't care about merely to relate to the marathon experience I myself love.
Society has become so obsessed with shoving documented experiences down our throats that we're losing the actual moments themselves. I went to a concert a couple of weeks ago (Kings of Leon, of course) and I was so annoyed by the 26 cell phones raised in my sight-line recording what I was trying to see. What's wrong with you people? Why can't you live in the moment? It was an amazing concert! (They've never sounded better!) So why aren't you living it. Enjoying it. Why aren't you watching through your real recording device, your brain? Is it not possible for people to just live life in the moment? Do they have to watch the concert later to enjoy it more? Spare me the overload. I wish people would chill out on the narcissistic snapping and posting of every moment and just live them.
I'm completely aware that voicing my opinion is probably just as narcissistic as posting a photo... but inviting you into my head is more intimate than flashing my ass at you. ;)
