I need to understand selfies, so if you understand them, come help me.
One of my friends posted a picture of herself, in a very short dress, seated, with a glass of wine, and a come hither expression. It is a selfie, she took it herself, the camera is visible in the pic. This woman is in her mid/late forties.
I don't get it. It would never occur to me to stop whatever I am doing and take a pic of myself to then share with everyone. Normally I take pics of other people doing things I want to remember.
Can someone explain this fascination people have with taking pics of themself?
ETA: My avatar is an older picture of my two daughters and is not a picture of myself. :-)
