#LebaneseSelfie

|

Social media and the mobile web has given rise to a strange phenomenon called the selfie. But not everyone is familiar with the term, so here’s a brief definition.

Who Takes Selfies?

Everyone takes selfies, but the younger crowd seems to be especially involved in the trend – mainly because teens and the 18 to 34 demographic are heavier digital users than their older counterparts.

Some selfies are extreme close-ups, others show part of an arm held straight outward and a few of the great ones even feature the subject standing in front of a bathroom mirror so that they can get a full body shot of their reflection. There are lots of selfie styles, and these are some of the most common.

Since social media is the driving force of most selfie activity, younger kids interested in staying connected to their friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, crushes or colleages are more active in sharing selfies on a regular basis.

Why Do People Take Selfies?

Who knows what kind of psychological factors drive any specific person to take a selfie and upload it to a social networking site. Everyone’s own situation is different, but here are some of the most common theories:

Why Do People Take Selfies?

Who knows what kind of psychological factors drive any specific person to take a selfie and upload it to a social networking site. Everyone’s own situation is different, but here are some of the most common theories:

To get a self-esteem boost: Here’s another reason why young people might be the leading demographic that’s part of the selfie trend. Not only are they plugged into the web at all times, but they also have more self-esteem issues – and many of these teens or college kids might upload selfies to deal with their own self-consciousness.

To show off: It’s human nature to want to show off your own great achievements. When you feel good about yourself (or look good), it’s far too easy to reach for your phone and document it all through one (or several) selfies.

To get a specific person’s attention: Kids who are connected on a social network to someone they admire may be more driven to upload attractive or alluring selfies as a way to seek attention, especially if they’re too shy to do it in person. It’s a strange new flirting method that’s only been around since the rise of mobile, but it’s definitely there.

Boredom: Hey, there are people who are bored at work, bored at school, bored at home and bored on the toilet. That’s right. Some people will take selfies because they have nothing else better to do.

Because social media is fun: Last but not least, social media is about being social! If that means uploading as many selfies as possible, then so be it. Some people don’t need a real reason to do it. They just do it because they like to do it, it’s fun, and it’s a cool way to sort of document your own life.
