From Bathroom Mirror Murals to Boastful Selfie Sweaters

— July 23, 2014 — Social Media
These examples of narcissistic selfies show just how prevalent the self portrait has become. At first it started as a social media phenomenon on such networks as Facebook and Instagram. Now it pervades other industries in order to turn a quick buck or make a hilarious impression. Whether adopted for marketing tactics or big tech companies, these selfies have taken a life of their own.

Yet at its core, these examples of narcissistic selfies demonstrate a person's desire to stand out from the crowd and get noticed. Living in an age of followers and likes, it becomes a form of acceptance and affirmation for those who post such photos. Yet many of these examples of narcissistic selfies also comment on modern social norms in general.
