The vanity of posting selfies

If you take a picture of yourself, what’s the point of posting it on social media aside from stoking your ego?

Technically, posting your picture on social media says two things: ‘I am here,’ and ‘I want you to like me based on how I look, and not on who I am.’

If you wonder like me why there seems to be a proliferation of shallow people today, you need not look too far. It’s all on social media.
