    If that's the case I should get an unscripted t-shirt on and hold the two books and travel down the lake shore and take a million selfie's with tourists and say this is the latest trend "Believe it or not!" At least their useful selfie's about getting a "Real Life".

    I used to take photographs a lot, and found the same thing out, at a concert. It's more enjoyable when you don't have a device in front of your face. This was back in 2004, before selfie's were popular. I used to be a photographer on year book staff in High School as well. I spent more time taking pictures than actually enjoying life. Maybe why I don't think selfie's are that great.

    social media just exposes people's narcissism. Social media or not most people live through the lives of others never actually "living" their lives. They go to jobs they hate to impress others instead of genuinely expressing their passions. They have friends with people who they "think" they should like. They do things they don't really want to because of the expectations of others.

    Real happiness comes from subjective experiences and deepening your subjective experience of life until you are fully merged into life so that you and life are one (as weird as that sounds).

    Next time you are with someone with a lot of social media presence, watch how they are usually a boring person when they are off the phone with nothing novel to say.

    Or watch them say a lot of irrelevant information that has nothing to do with anything of value, but entertainment, role playing, theatrics, and "Claims to be an expert", and than tells you how they're life is falling apart.

    Facebook should be used solely for product research/validation/ marketing. Otherwise, it's a sensational waste of time.
