What's Behind the "Selfie" Explosion?

Recently I have had journalists talk to me about the explosion of selfies and what I think it means about our culture.  At a core level I believe it indicates our desire to be seen, to have proof that we exist, that we have value, that we are not invisible, proof we our lacking in our face to face interactions.  I think that if we take a moment to be present with one another, to really be with each person we wouldn't need selfies, we would be seen in each other’s eyes.
It’s something to think about the next time you want to check your cell phone when someone is talking to you.

If you still want to take a great selfie here is another article with my tips on how to pose.
