The golden age of selfies: where it’s the norm to be narcissistic, and your phone prompts you of low disk space because of all the selfies in your photo gallery.
Everybody wants to look good for social media, but it’s proven to be quite the chore, because selfie-taking is an art, and sometimes art looks good and at times it just looks… abstract.
