“There’s nothing wrong with posting a hot pic of yourself on Instagram or Twitter. But there’s a fine line between sharing and being narcissistic. The key? Show more than just a pretty face… within reason.”

If you’re thinking about sending pics like these to people, just don’t bother. It’s not worth it if the pic gets out.

What? No – bad advice. Selfies gone wrong

If a self picture is sent to your girl friends, I imagine this may be OK. However, if a guy gets a hold of your ‘selfies’, it will be considered slightly self-important or slutty at the very best.

At worst… it could get pretty bad. I’ve heard guys laugh about these pictures in very ruthless ways, giving girl a bad rep or slamming her looks. Of course that’s not fair – but guys never respond to self portraits by saying “she’s cute”, “she’s hot”, “she’s funny/ironic/zany”.

From Urbandictionary.com:

“A selfie is usually accompanied by a kissy face or the individual looking in a direction that is not towards the camera. The typical selfie face involves a peace sign and duck lips.”

duck lips: …kissing faces while they take endless pictures of themselves and post them at various places on the internet. They think it looks really cool, but they actually look like an ugly ass duck. It looks really AWFUL, and makes me wan’t to destroy the internet because so many people are doing it.”
