Ohh, selfies… I read somewhere we are about to getting really, really tired of (other people’s) selfies. The above video from Nokia challenges that selfies don’t have to be purely selfish – we can use the phenomenon to for instance support the cause against online bullying – like Nokia does by introducing the auction of The Selfie Collection. Which by the way includes insanely beautiful Chanel earrings :) – check out the video.
Can you focus on yourself – when also focusing on others?
I think there’s an important message here. Well, Bradley Cooper made a most-clicked-on tweet with a selfie when receiving an Oscar this year – selfies are increasing and obviously here to stay, according to statistics from mediabistro.com:
Hmm… a quick look at my own selfies – just a few of them, haha! – tells me they’re mostly on the purely selfish side:
The Nokia commercial has made me think in a wider perspective, how I can use social media myself – even more consciously – in order to make a difference for others. Maybe like Nokia make an auction with a few of my designer items, and make the profit go to a good cause – or? Right now I don’t know exactly how – so please comment if you’ve got an idea. To be continued…
Peace & Love,
