A Look At The Latest Selfie Trends On Social Media

No, selfie trends aren't new. In fact, they've been around for as long as anyone can remember. They've even been described as a sexual form of self-expression, because no other object is capable of replicating the movements of an eyebrow twirling so perfectly or a hand thrust so emphatically that the palm glides past the eyes. It's as flawless and perfect as an animated cartoon character, and there's probably no better representation of a person's state of mind (or lack thereof) than an animated cartoon face.
As the name suggests, the best selfies are those that are captured using devices such as a smart phone, camera, or tablet. And luckily, the latest devices have a way of capturing facial expressions so perfectly that the resulting picture looks more like a photo than a self-portrait. Selfie Trends has come a long way since duckface at the gym. Since the launch of smartphones in 2021, changing room selfies have evolved into a whole new genre, where the importance of a well-designed photograph has become almost unnoticeable.
This, of course, is where the newest trend in selfies comes in. The key to a successful and popular selfie might be to know what kind of demographic to target, or at least how to find that target demographic. For instance, many younger people are drawn to clicking selfies because they mimic real life situations that they may find difficult to fathom in their own life. For example, many young people are fond of clicking selfies of themselves doing things they would likely find mortally embarrassing in public.
Some of these self-posts, however, are probably nothing more than teenage silliness. There are many examples of teenage faux-pas like wearing the same outfit for a school dance as an episode of "American Idol," or posing with famous faces from a popular TV show like Katy Perry. If there's any lesson we could learn from this, it's that the Internet is rife with imitations, and even the most absurd selfies do not necessarily require any artistic talents to create. The only thing that seems to change with the latest spate of "selfie" posts is the subjects' ages.
Some of the most interesting recent selfie trends focus on certain social media icons. Facebook has long had a button for "taking selfies," which automatically creates a photo in the user's newsfeed. In this form, the user is simply re-publishing a photo that was originally posted on a fan page dedicated to the original celebrity. This makes for an interesting contrast with the new trend of taking selfies with a digital camera or other device capable of printing out the photos.
Both teenagers and professionals are embracing the newest forms of self-expression. For teenagers, selfie trends on social media like Facebook and Instagram are generally harmless and often funny. For adults, the fascination with clicking selfies with a digital camera shows that people want to be as socially aware as possible.
