narcissism
if we are socialized to believe that everything we do is important and noteworthy, then what happens when we enter the work force?
According to the Pew Research Center, teenagers in America share more information than ever about themselves on social media. Of those studied, 91% post photos of themselves online.
"It’s what everyone wants: attention. Attention is power. And if you are someone people are interested in, then the selfie provides something very powerful, from the most privileged perspective possible... In our age of social networking, the selfie is the new way to look someone right in the eye and say, 'Hello, this is me.'”
-James Franco
