The Selfies As A Step Forward To Become „More“ And „The Most“ By Giving Up „The Self“
Languages of publication
As the most obvious provision of social media in the individual world, „selfie“ is confronted at a point where self-confidence is increased or lost. Nowadays, the use of social media starts at a very early age, and self-efficacy beliefs are also developing at an early age. However, the madness of selfie is becoming more of an „infantilized“ action. Thus, it can be argued that it functions as a counterfeit of the self and serves as a mirror in the individual’s world. It is also true that this „new or pseudo mirror“, which shows us both to ourselves and to others, also raises concerns about perceptual development, curiosity and visibility in the era of selfdiscovery throughout the developmental process. The concept of self-reflection and „selfie“ in its social media term emerges at a point where the individual’s internal communication is broken. It brings a „dual-dyadic“ concept on one hand and a „triad theory“ on the other. The study aims to analyze „selfie“ madness in social media, providing examples and assumptions within the framework of these theoretical discussions. The study aims to add new dimensions to the concept of self portrayals of individuals within national and international examples in the light of current media scrutiny.
