Citizen Frame

Advantages: Improves well being - keeps you connected with friends and family
Disadvantages: The delusional mindset of the teccie-ill-wishers

The ‘selfie’ is harmless – news, I know. I’ve yet to come across an individual who has been maimed, made ill over a ‘selfie’ – you’d think that something mythological was present if you found even the mildest form of illness connected with digital imagery ...

Review of #Selfies And #SelfieSticks : Are You A Fan?

For People Who Love Them"selfies"

Advantages: Perfect for loners
Disadvantages: Historians in the future will question our sanity.

As a brilliant scholar once proclaimed: "Taking selfies is the purpose of life.” Oh, sorry, that was actually a quote from Kim Kardashian – how on earth could I have got that one confused?? My Disclaimer I was hoping to enter into this discuss ...

Review of #Selfies And #SelfieSticks : Are You A Fan?

A selfie that contains more than your selfie ...

Advantages: Makes you feel like you're popular, saves needing a friend to take your picture, sheeps all round.
Disadvantages: Idiotic started by an idiot, stupid looking 'please love me' results, keeps the sheep in line

I have to start this off by saying that I can not stand selfies and I honestly believe that the people who 'take them' are 'not all there'. A few sandwiches short of a full picnic. A litre short of a gallon, a card short of a full deck .... you get ...

Review of #Selfies And #SelfieSticks : Are You A Fan?

Vanity for the digital age

Advantages: Everyone is in the picture, memories
Disadvantages: Can cause vanity, obsessions, flooding Facebook

Vanity for the 21st Century I am not old. I think 36 is still an age where, if I wanted to, I could go car surfing, planking, extreme ironing and go skiing behind a range rover down a snow covered country lane. Of course many of these things in my ...
