Narcissistic Tendencies in the Technological Age

Narcissis-rendition-1-275nktc

Narcissis-rendition-1-275nktcThere is power in social media. There is the kind of power that makes the celebrity hire a publicist to think twice for him about what he posts on Twitter. God forbid he should find himself recoiling in embarrassment at finding his ill stated post featured as the latest on an E news segment. Yes, power resides in the 15 year old culture enthusiast who gains recognition across America for her blog posts on world issues. Technology allows the beauty guru who no one knew last year to now have millions of fans and followers. It’s a fascinating truth that with just the click of a button your ideas, your thoughts, essentially the makings of you however trivial or detrimental are released to the masses and their too eager eyes.

But within the age of social media what’s following is this new, somewhat self-involved movement. This is a side effect of living in an age where the average person is constantly constructing their virtual image. Is it inevitable that they should become obsessed with it? We pick our poison of the social media whether it is Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Blogs, Tumblr, Keek, or all the above and proceed to compose it of what we think, what we look like and what we do on an everyday basis. Does this cause a heightened sense of self-importance? Could some of us dare to post consecutive pictures where we aren’t channeling runway ready super models on an everyday basis, at an “event”, spending money, or generally being fabulous? Maybe there is a certain vulnerable exposure and even a low key paranoia that hums beneath the surface when we press the “share” button. Maybe this fear causes us to give singular (and distorted) views of ourselves. One thing is for sure and that is with joining these social media sites we are at the mercy of our audience (followers) to give us acceptance (likes).  And if we don’t get this “acceptance” our social media value worth is somehow lowered. A new comer to the social media world would quickly find that there is a pressure to compete with one another. It’s possible that this pressure is heightened when we include the lavish lives of the rich who have these same social media outlets. To some extent social media is supposed to be a way in which we exert our individuality. If this is true then why are we keeping close eyes on the acceptance we gain? Are we growing into a generation that seeks self-assurance through other people’s approval? Between the national outbreak of “selfies” and the hand praising emoji’s (that we self-direct) how much of ourselves are we sensationalizing and for what purpose?

    Much of just what they are aiming to do is commendable,
    but uncertainties that they are additionally inspired by Big Cigarette to extract competitors versus Fortunate
    Strike as well as Virginia Slims is justified also.

    Operating on a re-chargeable NiMH Glyph battery (2 are included), this system is incredibly user-friendly with the burner turning on simply by holding the battery securely
    right into the side of the vaporizer.
