What don't you understand?

What's out there that you don't get?  I don't get people (besides teenagers) that take tons of selfies and then post them.  I don't get it.  Do they want acknowledgement that, "Hey, you look great!." or "Hey, yes, I see your cleavage!"  - it's tiring

I don't get it.  What don't you get?

Same as you. I guess because I grew up in a different time, but I'm only 36.

What I also don't understand are people who love to brag about how hard they are to get along with.

I know a girl who posts selfies and then says things like "I still look good and I have a kid."  My thought is who is she trying to convince?  Kind of seems like a self esteem issue to me.  They need the comments.

Didn't know having a kid meant you weren't supposed to look good anymore. Interesting. Lol

This is exactly true. I read a study that said the number of times a day a person checks their FB is directly related to their self-esteem.

It releases endorphins much like drugs.
