Selfies are the icon of this age like how playing with marbles defined our grandparents’ generation. They are an expression of one presented in the visual form rather than writing a diary or singing a song about them. They should not be frowned upon as a method to attract attention or to fish for compliments as they are no different from ordinary photographs. Maybe the perception that the photo-taker is yourself gives the idea that you are delusional and narcissistic but then the same argument can be used against any other photo. Should all types of photographs be destroyed then? Selfies also play a role in highlighting the self-confidence and an occasional need for reassurance in the current generation of young people.

Selfies are an example of a generation’s need for attention and acknowledgement. It serves as a form of self-gratification as selfies often garner a lot of compliments, as well as a form of self-expression at times, depending of the nature of the photo. Hence selfies can become a major factor in how everyone else perceives a person. However, the selfie is not representative of the attitudes of a generation, as not all individuals have the same opinion about selfies. Even still though, we cannot deny that the selfie is becoming more and more prevalent in this generation of people.

Selfies are increasingly common in this generation. Undeniably, selfies are seen to be something that aims to attract people’s attention and garner “likes” and compliments. However, social networking sites are so common now and it is wrong to say that people only use them to attract attention. Social networking sites also promote communication and helps people to connect easily online and share their thoughts and emotions. Similarly, selfies are also used to convey one’s emotions at a point in time. It is not representative of the attitudes of a generation as the emotions and meaning behind selfies are not always the same.
