    Using the Rabbi's metaphor, if a selfie is a continuing of a conversation, then the constant use of "I" in a conversation. That is the narcissistic aspect. It isn't the selfie... It is the constant statement of "I" and the direction of the conversation that the selfie takes the conversation in. Selfies and other Web posts are subject to the same rules of normal conversation. Our conversation should be a give and take. It should not be all about the mundane aspects of your life, etc. Interesting, fun and occasional Selfies are 100% fine. To the documentation aspect, they are awesome, but I don't want to read every page of your diary. Some yes, some no. Actually, most no. It cool if you want to read your diary, though. This article lacks the balance that Selfies seem to lack. It's about consideration of the other... The person not in the selfie. The Rabbi doesn't really include that person's interests... Which is the inherent issue that plagues most Selfies.

    from the article: Is the selfie narcissism at its finest?
