My daughter loves taking selfies

This topic is for PRCA 3334 – Social Media & PR

My 14-year-old daughter (pictured) is obsessed with taking selfies. She will take several before she will get one she likes and posts to snapchat. She’s not alone in this selfie obsession.

Take a look at this infographic, and this article, then discuss the following questions on your blog.

How many selfies (just yourself) do you take a day? A week? Of those, how many do you post to social media? How many us-ies do you take a day/week (you and at least one other person)? How many of them do you post? Why do you take the selfie/us-ie in the first place? For fun, to show off, boredom?

Do you agree or disagree with the article when they state “men who take a lot of selfies were more likely to display traits linked to narcissism.” Do you think women could also be seen as having narcissistic tendencies with the selfies they take? Defend your opinion.

Post a selfie or us-ie with your blog post.

Remember, you must post your response on your blog.
