An award for everything, the word “selfie” won last year’s Oxford English Dictionary’s word of the year: “a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website”. Kinda cute for the first five minutes but when some people change their profile photo several times a day, it may be indicative of a problem.
In the case of one nineteen-year-old man, his obsession with taking the perfect self-portrait resulted in his snapping two hundred photographs of himself every day in its quest. It is becoming apparent that the selfie craze is affecting those with a predilection for obsessive-compulsive behaviors and self-image issues, providing an outlet and vehicle for addiction. Other cognitive behavior modification techniques were applied to allow him to recognize his behavior, its causes, and alter his response to its compulsion. The mental health and self-esteem issues aren’t new but the technology in which to optimally exploit them is. The scores on the scale dovetailed with reported Facebook activity and high scores were associated with late bed- and rising-times. There are two opposing sides to those addicted to social media: narcissism and low self-esteem.

At a time when people are becoming more and more disconnected from each other, the natural world, and themselves, maybe it’s time to re-evaluate what a true relationship with another person is, how to have meaningful connections, and what it means to be human. It is through true personal human contact that we define ourselves and fulfill our emotional needs. When his perception of perfection was found unattainable, he was driven to attempt suicide. His treatment included being separated from his smart phone for ten-minute increments beginning at ten minutes for up to an hour. Further, scores were positively associated to neuroticism and extroversion and negatively correlated with conscientiousness.[1] No surprise there.
With a world-wide support system, people who tweet negative thoughts and feelings are often met with caring souls who offer words of encouragement and strength.

Instead of looking down at an electronic device, maybe we should start looking at each other in real life.
Subjects were asked to complete questionnaires on their sleep habits and personality traits. One teenager who posted her intentions for killing herself was talked out of it by her followers. So there is real value in developing networks for those without connections closer to home.
