    The main reason is there are so many bad ones. Noses are too big. Bad lighting. Takes to long as they guess what image they have.

    I am still confused by these, but then we were raised in a different time...shudder to think what I could have been like given the access to this technology as a teen?? Still I have never owned a cell phone and therefore have never taken a selfie. I have seen some shocking pics posted by young women ( and men ) who I might imagine may regret taking at some point in time.

    lol. Walks...that's because we ARE from a different generation. We're from the generation that paid $18 for a cannister of Kodak film that had 24 exposures that took you 6 months to use up in your camera (because it was so darned expensive that every picture was like GOLD!) and then 3 weeks and about $30 to develop said roll of film at the local drugstore.

    We didn't have the MONEY for selfies so we took pictures of stuff that mattered.

    I'm with most of you. The name "selfie" annoys me and I think they are true to the root of their word: SELFISH.

    I don't take selfies. If I wanna know that badly what I look like, I can go stare in the mirror and make faces at myself. In the meantime, I will take photos of people and places and things that I adore--like my kids, my DH, my cat, our vacation spot etc.

    Sorry if that offends some. Guess my age is showing.

    THANK YOU!!! I was afraid to post the details of all the money I used to spend developing prints from my old timey camera!!! lol!! I loved what you said there. We can never go back either. The selfie is here to stay sadly.

    I'll try to find the report but I read somewhere about selfies causing an increase in head lice due to people getting very close in these kind of pictures.

    I love taking selfies.
    I do not like my picture being taken because people never get the right angle or lighting, and I look like crap, so a selfie is a way for me to take a pic and remember a moment.
