Why Do Selfies Hurt Relationships?
Are you sabotaging your relationship by posting too many selfies? A new study published in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking suggests yes, and here's why.
People who have higher levels of satisfaction with their body image share more photos of themselves on Instagram.
However, those individuals in turn report more conflicts with their romantic partners. Apparently, the couples' arguments stemmed from the partner feeling jealous or threatened over the attention the photos garnered online.
This can also stem from insecurity, if someone feels they need validation and they're not getting it in their personal relationships, it can manifest itself in social media like Instagram or Facebook.
The best selfies are the one-to-one selfies, personalized for just that someone. Like in texts or on Snapchat for instance.
