The 'Selfie'

      "The profile picture or avatar is a way for people to present a certain side of themselves. It also puts the person in control of their own image." 

       -The Social Psychology of the Selfie


       This quote comes from an article about the famous internet 'selfie' and gives the reader perspective as to why others tend to take 'selfies'. Our desire to show a controlled image to the public is what drives the 'selfie'; it's an effective way to control the way others view ourselves.
