Do you think people seeing your face somehow improves their lives; even your own?

Selfie.

Inward looking.

Focused, self-importance.

Sharing nothingness with the world.

Shallow.

    soooooooo agree! good for you. people who endlessly post photos of themselves on selfies or facebook are unwittingly posting an unflattering view of their self absorption. i always wonder why they can’t see how bad this looks?

      I think they could be a diversionary tactic from some inner sadness; maybe they are a social badge of inclusiveness, a statement of personal success which is in need wider affirmation or just a simple cry for help. An SOS if you like or maybe I am wrong, and they are harmless, but I think not for self absorption is never healthy.
