A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media:occasional selfies are acceptable, but posting a new picture of yourself everyday isn’t necessary
In honor of #NationalSelfieDay yesterday — we got to thinking about our #Selfie culture …
We live in a world, where we now visualize our daily lives through the lens of a camera, and for all practical purposes, our lives are commanded by the click and snap of the digital sphere.
Documenting every moment from Snapchat to Instagram and Facebook to Twitter, our lives have become a cultural phenomenon. This change has actually altered the scope of how we live, because our thought patterns have now shifted, causing us to think more about the kind of image we will produce to stream, instead of streaming our life in real time, by living in the moment.
We want to remind you to live out each moment, not for garnering more ‘Likes’ on social media, but because you are really living in the memory, not just making a memory to show others.
a very brief period of time.
That is what we MUST remember… A ‘Moment’ is a very brief period of time, so if we are too busy worrying about snapping or tweeting our way through it, our gram will be just that a gram forgotten.
So pause and stop worrying about processing images of your life, and actually LIVE your life!
Happy Tweeting 🙂
