Why Do People Hate Selfies So Much?

Let me take a picture of myself to convey my feelings about this.

Despite rising so far in popularity that it was named Oxford’s Word of the Year in 2013, the selfie sure does have a lot of haters. Setting aside the perceived narcissism angle (guys, we’re all narcissistic, that’s just what being human is), why does the selfie get such a bum rap? PBS Idea Channel has some thoughts on the subject.
