No Selfie Day - March 16

No Selfies Day is a day that is celebrated every year on March 16 in order to raise awareness of the epidemic of selfies and its negative impact on our lives. The world we live in is now severely affected by the deadly COVID19 plague that has killed so many lives. But there is another epidemic that is seriously affecting our lives and it is the epidemic of selfies, which is mostly characteristic of young people. This epidemic stems from the development of technology in the field of photography that has taken photography to the next level. As a result, anyone who has a smartphone has ever taken selfies. The advantage of taking a selfie is that you can take a picture of yourself without asking anyone else to do it, and show that you were in a beautiful and special place. You can also take lots of pictures to choose the best one, but the problem is that there are millions of people who are addicted to it and take dozens if not hundreds of selfies a day, which is why they call selfies a plague. Selfie photography has become an addiction that destroys the lives of many people. People take pictures of themselves and then upload the picture to the social network and expect to get attention, and this desire affects their mood because many people get depressed because they have not received enough likes. Another problem is the waste of time of the test if they received enough likes and the comparison to how many likes they received at other times, the test of who did the likes and who did not, and in short - a complete waste of time on nonsense!


The selfie phenomenon has also claimed lives. More than 330 people from around the world lost their lives in the pursuit of the perfect selfie image - some fell off cliffs, others drowned in rivers and some were run over to death by trains. There were also people who committed suicide because of depression due to the lack of attention they received to their selfies.

Another problem of selfies is what has become the concept of social beauty. Beauty is perceived as a perfect face and to get such a face, we can not use our real photos but add filters or use photo editing software. Filters that thicken the lips, that smooth the skin and keep us away from the truth. This need for falsification of reality is accompanied by a decrease in self-esteem. Because when we are out of selfies, it makes us feel not pretty and good enough.


The origin of No Selfies Day

It is not known who created the No selfies day and when they started celebrating it, but who created the No selfies day did so for a good reason. He intended to make people addicted to selfies understand the negative effects of the addiction.

A study found that on average girls spend an hour and twenty-four minutes each week trying to take the perfect selfie. It's just the time she spends in photography, but what about the time she spends checking the likes?

The UK and India have the highest rate of Facebook users in the world and as a result also the highest rate of deaths as a result of attempts to take selfies in the world. Authorities in these countries have already declared areas where selfies are not allowed. Two universities, Indian and British, conducted a study among 400 participants and concluded that a real mental disorder can be diagnosed around selfies. According to the study, people who take and upload more than 6 selfies a day to social networks suffer from severe Selfitis, which interferes with daily functioning. Anyone who takes 3-6 pictures still suffers from Selfitis, but one that you can live with.

How to celebrate the day without selfies?

The best way to mark No Selfies Day is to simply not take selfies of the day. If you feel it is affecting you badly, a sign that you are addicted. Be careful not to take pictures of yourself or upload your photos to social media. Encourage other people not to take selfies to stay away from this psychologically devastating disease. If you know someone who is really addicted to selfies, help them get rid of this addiction disorder. Use the hashtag #NoSelfiesDay to spread the word on social media instead of posting your selfies.

When you have too many friends, you probably know this annoying friends that post pictures of their kids sitting on the audience chairs in the theatre and watching movies. Every time it's a different movie but the same kids, the same picture. Unfriends those nuts!

You have those friends whom you talked to only one time, and than you received a friend request from them and you confirmed and now you have to see all their lives in front of you, all their family, all the things they eat, all the places they're are going, like you care, Unfriend these people? who are they anyway?

You have those friends that write you "How are you?" In response to your uploaded image. What do you want? to start a conversation about my sucks life? ask me on private! Unfriend these annoying people!
So you deleted a lot of friends, and now you see that the number of friends got smaller and you don't know who you cancelled and who cancelled you, now you have to deal with this unknowing truth and maybe it's not such a nice feeling. But it's ok, you don't need fake friends in your life.

Social Media Day - June 30

Once upon a time there was no such thing as a "social media." People would call each other on the phone or send letters and if anyone was traveling abroad he would send postcards with pictures of the place. Did you live in that period? At that time of course there were social networks, but they were completely different, with no computer mediating between people.


Once to keep up with the news people would read newspapers and magazines, then came radio and television, and only at the end did the internet come. These forms of mass communication - communication that reaches a multitude of people at once - are very important in a democracy, because this is how citizens are constantly updated on current events and important issues, and in a democracy "the public's right to know" is one of the basic foundations.
But the internet can do much more than just blow up with written information and visual news. Thanks to it, people can communicate with each other in the fastest way when it comes to any topic and news that is published, and they can also make connections through it. They can share personal and news photos, digital creations like memes and GIFs, and they can also post business ads easily and for free.


Already at the beginning of the Internet age there were efforts to support social networks through computer communication like forums and chats. In the late 90's, personal profiles became a central feature of social networking sites and they made it possible to find friends with common interests. In 2004, Facebook was launched and in 2009 it became the largest social networking site in the world. Twitter was launched in 2006 and at the end of 2012 it had over 500 million users. In 2011 Google launched Google+ but in April 2019 the service was shut down. In the following years came more social networks like Instagram, Snapshot and more.
A Globalwebindex report found that the most common social media platforms today (2019) are (in order, with the most common use being # 1):
1. Facebook
2. YouTube
3. WhatsApp
4. Instagram
5. Twitter
6. LinkedIn
7. Skype
8. Snapshot
9. Pinterest
10. Tumblr


The report further revealed that most YouTube users are guests who have not logged into their accounts or are not friends even in the first place.
Most YouTube users are between the ages of 16 and 24.
The 16-24 age group is more active on Instagram than the 55-64 age group.
The site that founded Social Media Day is Mashable, a news site that focuses on social media and technology. He created this special day in 2010.
Today's idea is to recognize and celebrate social media and its contribution to education, journalism, entertainment and citizenship.


It is impossible not to mention that social media also has some really bad effects, as well as having many good effects.
Because of the ease of social media communication that results from it not being done physically but behind screens, people allow themselves to be violent and hurt each other on the network. This is something that must be addressed as soon as possible, because even though communication is done between computers, there are real people who are harmed by it. In honor of Social Networking Day you should remember and memorize it.
Another danger in the social media we have been witnessing lately is the phenomenon of fake news, which is spreading very quickly among people and influencing decision making. It is important to be aware that a lot of information that comes to us from social networks is false and that we need to check everything with reliable sources.
