Selfies……Really?!

“Selfie” was named Oxford Dictionarys’ Word of the Year in 2013 and is defined as, “A photograph taken of oneself, typically taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.”

Who takes “selfies?” The 18 to 34 year old aged demographic kicked off the trend, but now it appears that anyone who can buy a point and shoot camera and hold it out in front of their face can also look like idiots. The photo to your left was labeled as the introductory selfie pose, which is not recommended for anyone over the age of 24. Time magazine labeled the word “selfie” as the top buzzword of 2012. Little known fact……scientific studies have proven that the longer the arm of the individual taking the selfie, the better the quality of the photo.

Studies have shown that there are 5 reasons as to why we take selfies. 1….Narcissism…as in getting as much attention from as many people as possible to admire your bad self. 2….To get a large boost of self esteem. 3….To show off your dumb ass duck face. 4….To get that “special” persons’ attention, and 5….Overwhelming boredom.

The $1,000 question currently being discussed by professional photographers nationwide is, “Should the baby boomers integrate the “duckface selfie” into their photo inventory?” I believe the photo to your left will answer that question.

Over the last two years, the youngest individual to attempt and succeed at taking a selfie was a gifted one week old infant from New Milford. Unfortunately once this baby genius snapped the photo, his tiny camera fell out of his baby hands. Next time Bradley!
