Lol, selfies are stupid. We went bowling for new years and my sister sat there taking selfies saying its for memories. I'm like wtf memories of taking selfies. All you need is one picture instead of wasted time taking multiple selfies through the night.

The problem created by camera phones, people are too busy trying to capture the moment that they forget to live in it and fully appreciate it.

@aiBreeze Exactly, I remember a photo back when the pope was here. Showing everyone with there phone out except one old lady whose enjoying the moment having that memory in the mind. These days it's just texting, selfies, social media. Makes me wish I was in the 70s or somethin. All 3 cause deaths.

This generation of people constantly need attention and sadly base their worth on how many "followers" and "Likes" they get. Its a mental disorder

Unfortunately its not the worst mental disorder caused by technology. Fanboyism is by far the worst. It may not kill you, but if it applies you might as well be dead.
