Why Selfie Keeps Your Friends Away

By Alon Calinao Dy: Let's be fair here, selfie is like a drug addiction. The more you feel it, the more you post photos online and the more likes you want from your friends. It's easy to gain followers, but it keeps your friends away.

Selfie is an artwork to express one's self. It's so much fun if you know you inspire others and teach something important for them. There's nothing wrong doing selfie if you know your boundaries.

However, most selfie posters these days exceed to the limits in the sense that they have no longer privacy in their lives. 

In the Philippines alone, there are many accounts that those people who are doing selfie put themselves at risks. In fact, many have already died because of selfie whether they are driving their own cars  or walking down the roads and hit by the rushing cars.

As I mentioned, there's nothing wrong with a selfie. Actually, the photographs we pose on the cyberspace can be part of good memories we have or it can boost more confidence in ourselves if we know that lots of people hit the like button. It means your photos are interesting.

With the new trends of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and etc., it's much easier for us to send our photos instantly and gain supporters. Yet, are you surprised when your expected followers did not like your new post a few days ago? It's not that they hate you, it's because you have gone too far.
