While selfies are not very common among my friends (since I'm older), I can somewhat understand younger kids wanting to use them to gain self esteem. Sure, it comes off as egotistical but they are probably not intelligent enough to realize (or care about) that part of it. However, I don't understand the car selfies. Usually, it's simply a pic of a woman in her car with a fastened seat belt. Where did this originate and why is it so popular these days?
