Russia Launches “Safe Selfies” Campaign
Yes, we have to tell people to be careful when taking a photograph of yourself.
In Russia, they're doing something about it!
Their Interior Ministry has launched a “Safe Selfie“ campaign that encourages citizens to avoid putting themselves in danger when taking selfies.
“Even a million ’likes’ on social media are not worth your life and well-being,“ the campaign’s slogan reads.
Brochures containing guidelines for taking safe selfies will be handed out at public students and to students at Russian schools.
These guidelines list selfie no-nos, including posing with firearms, standing in front of an oncoming train, hanging from a rooftop, and getting close to wildlife.
As you can see -- even if you don't know Russian there's diagrams (!!!) -- they're taking this seriously over there.
Come on, America! Step up, and help the kids and the stupid people. UNI and Wartburg in particular could really use these brochures.
