are you a selfie addict?

Philippines
February 19, 2018 10:23pm CST
i noticed/observed on the people i met either on jobs or just random people outside they seems like to get involved in a group picture taking of their friends, co workers, relatives eventhough for example its just 2person is taking a pic at that moment, all will suddenly run to join that 2 person like they cant be disregarded they should be on the pic as well or left behind, theyre so happy and laughing to bother a person/2 sets of people or 3 who wants to be alone on the pic for a while. is it really important to be included on all of the pics? im not like that but the people i knew force me to join the selfie taking just like the previous company i've worked before. why? whats going on whats so special? i alrady joined on the first/second picture taking why on the 3rd and the next selfie of those people not even my close. why cant just sit in and behave and do youre job? have you encountered/met people like these? FYI its a lot here, so many. its a shame its dissapointing. just another extroverted minds.

@thelme55 its okay if you just do it alone or ask someone to do it but what i dont like are a group of friends who looks crazy trying to join themselves in a picture taking even if theyre not invited

I'd much prefer taking pictures of nature than pictures of myself.

Maybe they want to see if you are a loner or someone that join in on things. Who knows what is going on their minds when they feel you have to join in. I have had people ask if they could take my picture and at times I said yes but other times because I do not always take good pictures I prefer not to be in them.

yeah but the thing is even if you want to be alone they will force you to join. asking somebody to take a pic of you is different, im also doign that to random people i saw if they can take a pic of me and its okay with them.

I am not really interested in taking selfie, but then when my son or daughter in law wants us to join to have a group photo graph then we join them! In India specially the youth are very crazy about taking the selfie and they post the pictures on social media! Thanks dear @Strawberry18!

Actually, here too in the office, some of my officemates are fond of selfies and groupies. Though, that happens when there is a birthday celebration. So, when they call for a groupie everyone would run to be included including me. But that's when there is an occasion to document of course. Although, I don't like those selfie pictures on fb of my friends, especially when they keep doing it every day. Yay! So, feeling beautiful!

@Strawberry18 I have friends at FB who always take a picture of themselves. I like their other posts but not their selfies. Maybe they should take a clue on why .

@SIMPLYD Sometimes I take away the e from selfie and add sh. Selfie becomes selfish. People want everything to be all about themselves alone. It's a bothersome trend.

@Strawberry18 THere are people who are taking selfie on everything, even if it is stupid. Some selfie just to have an album or to share is ok, but using selfie on everything is too foolish.

Consumed by vanity of trend, that's what it is. I sense it even during those times when people are just being into the picture. There are times that we are doing it here as well, except if it's family.
