Selfies boosts self confidence

This boosts up one’s confidence in front of the camera, makes them aware of their perfect angles for the camera and makes them believe in better pictures.


You must have noticed selfies are not just about clicking blank faces, its about the expression they hold. People make funny expressions, winks, raise eyebrows and what not to make their selfies the best. Selfies are like an extension of one’s expression noticed in front of the camera by them.

Over obsessed with looks

We talked about confidence being a part of your selfie, talk about over-confidence being a problem here! While selfies can be a liberating act to a lot of people giving them confidence and more openness towards the camera, there can be a serious harm of making people over-confident too.

It is because of the selfies that people have started to become too self obsessed and self loving that they have gone careless towards others feelings and appreciation. The craziness has crossed borders in a way that people find happiness in getting their selfies right and earning likes on them. And if the same does not get reflected in real life for all the real moments they get irritating and angry at the public!

Selfies are the simple camera clicks which people take with their cell phone camera at their arms length. It makes them the owner of their picture and helps in capturing the pictures just like they want it to be – being a focus off the picture too!

Selfie has become so important and obsessive that there is slowly arriving a time where clicks are becoming dangerous and sometimes a spoiler. Selfies can be a friend when you know how safe you can use it and it can be your foe if the obsession for selfie has increased much above one’s feeling and life!
