Off-screen, in the real world it uses as a studio set, the selfie taker is a creature whose vanity may be directly traced back to early portrait commissioners who posed throughout the ages to immortalize their likeness, thousands of years before Likes could be counted and collected. Unleashed by the smartphone revolution, the Selfie Taker’s inner narcissist has evolved to become an opportunistic contortionist whose arms can stretch to find the best angles, and whose nose can sniff out opportunities to increase its celebrity. No longer limited to an analog audience of close friends and family, the Selfie taker’s ego now has the World Wide Web to feed off and an infinite supply of filters allowing it to edit and censor its true reflection like never before. Some behavioral studies indicate that the Selfie Taker’s revolution is a temporary trend that may yet pass. But We Beg to Differ. With Sawa’s New Prepaid Plans, The SELFIE is here to stay.
