We want to ban the selfie.
Too extreme? OK, maybe not an outright ban, more a change of perspective.
Not many of us would happily admit to being narcissistic, would we? But while scrolling through the endless Facebook albums of pictures featuring yourself, yourself with that glass of wine, yourself and the cat, yourself on the beach, yourself featuring a family member, this Guardian article says you’re exactly that.
The article is based on a 2013 University of Georgia report, Narcissism and Social Networking Web Sites, which states social media activity is higher in narcissists – and narcissists post are more likely to post self-centred content, such as pictures. And as 76% of the UK now own a smartphone, together with the introduction of the selfie stick – named by Time magazine as one of the best inventions of 2014, it’s never been easier to snap away to our heart’s content.
