Selfies And Healthies

I read about a study today that found that posting too many selfies on your social media can ruin relationships, alienating your friends, family and co-workers.
Well, first of all, I can't believe that a scientific study was conducted to conclude this. And, yes, the abundance of selfies are horrible. People who post them daily make me want to punch them in the duck face.
But then I read another article about an even more narcissistic nonsense, the "healthie," which is apparently when someone takes a selfie to show off how fit they are or even just brag about the fact that they are in a gym-even if it's the first time they've been there since getting the membership in a hungover daze at New Year's.
Technology is really making the world a better place.

**Somewhat related: I've actually been feeling nostalgic lately for that excited feeling of waiting the hour to pick up the developed pictures from your disposable camera as well as the era before Netflix and On Demand when you would meander through the video store for possibly an hour. Ah, good times......
