If social media only caused narcissism, it wouldn't be the worst thing. Instagram and Facebook are social networks that not only breed narcissistic tendencies but transform relations into a sexual rat race. On these ubiquitous portals, the popularity of girls is hotly contested over one big deal: how sexy can I appear and bring it off with everyone's admiration? That's the reason we see mirror shots, pouting self-portraits of teenagers typically female and sexually suggestively posed girls in a mini-dress ''before a party last night''. They're showing how much they like themselves and hoping that you'll hit ''like'' to reinforce the claim.
Many of the photos get hundreds of retweets and are shared widely by a highly supportive group of complete strangers. BuzzFeed News talked to some of the teenagers about why they are posting strangers' selfies. At their request, BuzzFeed News has only used their first names. Whether they're my friend, or a stranger I haven't even met on Twitter, everyone deserves to feel positively about their body and all it takes is a compliment," Jennifer told BuzzFeed News. Jennifer starting sharing her own photos online about two years ago. At first she posted the occasional photo but mostly used her account for interacting with friends and the bands she loved. Now, she is far more likely to share a personal photo about an issue she is passionate about than to post a gushing tweet about a boy band.
Most popular type of photos on facebook, instagram , twitter and whatsapp are selfies. Before it was known as self portrait. Which can easily be used to position the camera farther away from the subject, allowing the camera to see more around them. Trend of Selfies stated a long time ago.
