People Who Died After Taking A Selfie

Selfie was coined in 2005 as a way to describe a special kind of self-portrait. From presidents to Academy Award winners, everybody’s doing it. It’s a part of our modern culture that we all engage in without any real thought. Most of the time, we do it so we can post them onto social media and show everyone what we look like at our best, and how we spend our time. How awesome we are…

You know, real, live people. With heartbeats! Increased frequency of sharing photographs of the self, regardless of the type of target sharing the photographs, is related to a decrease in intimacy,” explains the report. [via]

Besides of being evidence of narcissism, selfie can also be deadly. People staring at their smartphones’ screens forget about God’s world. And this is the simplest way to misadventure.
