Part personal scrap-book, part racy, exhibitionist, photo stream, selfies give you the opportunity to put yourself out there – with images you control. You choose the angles, light, clothes or lack of clothes, poses, and ultimately, you choose whether or not you delete the picture or upload it.
Pictures that others have taken of you can be edited, posted, tagged, and shared across social networks. Your permission is not required, and you have no say in what happens with them regardless of how comfortable you are with the images. Selfies allow you to be in absolute control. You’re the editor!
