A generation sharing itself via mobile phone cameras spurs debate | Herald Sun

A generation sharing itself via mobile phone cameras spurs debate | Herald Sun | Social Media and How It Is Harmful To Our Lives | Scoop.it

Socrates may have opined that the "unexamined life is not worth living", but for today's tech-savvy X and Y generations, it is the undocumented life that's not worth living.

 

Whatever we do, think, see or eat must be documented and shared with the world.

 

If it isn't pictured and posted online then there's a genuine concern that it didn't really happen.

 

Last month, I met a Canadian couple in Milan who decided not to see The Last Supper because they wouldn't be allowed to take photos.

 

Presumably, they didn't realise that photos of Da Vinci's masterpiece already exist or perhaps they thought the experience of seeing one of the great works of art would be diminished if they couldn't take a vainglorious selfie in front of the mural and share it on social media.

 

The selfie, a self-portrait taken typically on a camera phone, has become an integral part of a social media user's online profile. They are generally harmless but many have come to regret posting cringeworthy shots of themselves in front of bathroom mirrors or making pouty duck faces at the camera.

 

Celebrities are particularly adept at embarrassing themselves by sharing shots on Twitter or Instagram that would be best kept on their smartphones, or preferably deleted.

 

Shane Warne earned the scorn of the online world for posting a topless selfie in bed that was unintentionally hilarious and triggered a series of copycat images.

 

I imagine he was aiming for sexy but the tragic pic succeeded only in making you yearn for the fat Warnie of yesteryear who preferred milkshakes and cans of VB to fine wine and English crumpet.

 

Instagram has revealed that users have posted more than 23 million images with the #selfie hashtag. It may be self-indulgent and a tad narcissistic but it's a phenomenon that could also cost the social-media set more than a little embarrassment.
