Are you over selfies? | The Tylt
Tuesday is #NationalSelfieDay! And most people are stopping to take a selfie (or two, or twenty). But selfies are apparently ruining some people's lives. Some people just can't get with the selfie program. Can you blame them? There are so many selfies shared daily, folks are tired of seeing every aspect of a person's life all over the Internet. Many blame selfie stars and over-sharers like Kim Kardashian.
And people's annoyance with selfie taking and social platforms like Snapchat may speak to a larger issue: are selfies a symptom of a culture of oversharing?
Take Tuesday's holiday. Do we really need a holiday to celebrate selfies? For some people every day is #NationalSelfieDay! But others enjoy sharing photos of themselves and say the haters just need to get over it—selfies are a way of life now. People hated cellphones too (some still do) but they're now an accepted staple of modern life.
What do you think: #SelfieOverload or #KeepTakingSelfies?
Are you over selfies?
But every day is selfie day!
People have hated selfies for a long time—it's seen as part of the culture of oversharing.
Selfies are part of life! Get with it.
