essay修改:为什么年轻一代痴迷于自拍?

如今,自拍已经成为一种被接受的社会规范,年轻一代不再犹豫通过自拍分享他们一整天的活动。据观察,从2014年到2015年,Instagram上有超过3100万张图片被标记为“自拍照”,Instagram就是这样一个平台,65%以上的用户群在15岁到29岁之间。事实上,根据一项在线调查显示,18岁至24岁之间的照片中,30%是自拍。如今有了“自拍杆”等专用设备,使得自拍的过程更加方便。痴迷于自拍还可能与人类自命不凡的奇怪倾向有关。年轻的群体往往有巨大的压力,以证明自己在不同的人生阶段,例如一个人可能有兴趣去听摇滚音乐会,或一个人可能试图计划一个越野旅行等。因此,当他们能够实现他们想要与他们的朋友和追随者分享他们的成就,以表明他们已经得到了他们的目标。虽然这方面也可以采取积极的态度,但当我们考虑年轻一代,那么这种倾向通常被认为是自命不凡。换句话说,自拍显然与同伴压力有关。例如,如果一个年轻女孩15年的点击有问题在埃菲尔铁塔,和她的追随者或朋友一起分享网络,那么亲密的朋友可能没有访问了纪念碑肯定会感觉轻微的嫉妒,然后他们经常尝试做一些类似的事情可以匹配方面的成就有问题由他们的朋友在埃菲尔铁塔(希夫,2015)。

另一个需要在痴迷的背景下考虑的重要方面是社交媒体的作用。2014年,一家网络公司进行的一项调查显示,55%以上的青春期女性认为社交媒体在很大程度上让她们对自己的外表感到难为情。因此,长得好看的人会继续自拍,并在社交媒体平台上分享,以获得更多的赞和转发(Gram, 2013)。更多的人谈论它,更多的是一个人得到的自我满足。这种情况间接地形成了一个恶性循环,一个人为了得到更多的赞扬、评论等,会自拍更多,等等。

然而,沉迷于自拍背后最重要的原因之一是即时满足的概念。年轻一代对生活的态度通常是焦躁不安的,他们想要的一切在本质上都是即时的。考虑一下自拍的过程。一个人点击这张自拍,编辑它,然后上传到Facebook上,几分钟内人们就开始谈论它,评论它,喜欢它,这最终帮助上传者获得即时的满足感或快速的欣赏。

With selfie becoming an accepted social norm today, young generation is no more hesitant of sharing their entire day activities through selfies. It was observed that from 2014 to 2015 more than 31 million Instagram pictures were tagged as #Selfies, and Instagram is one such platform whose more than 65% user base is from age group of 15 to 29 years. In fact according to one of the research conducted online, selfies make up 30% of photos taken between the ages of 18-24. Today there are dedicated devices such as ‘Selfie sticks’ etc. which has made the process of taking selfies even more convenient. Obsession with selfie can also be related to a strange tendency of human being to be pretentious. Young age-group often has tremendous pressure to prove themselves at different stages of life, for example a person might be interested in going to a rock concert, or one person might be trying to plan a cross country trip etc. Hence, the moment they are able to achieve they want to share their achievements with their friends and followers to show that they have got what they were aiming for. Although this aspect can be taken in a positive manner also, but when we consider young generation then such tendency is generally slotted as being pretentious. In other words, selfie clearly relates to the phenomenon of peer pressure. For example if a young girl of 15 years clicks a selfie at Eiffel Tower and shares it with her followers or friends network, then the close friend who might not have visited the monument will definitely feel slight jealous, and then they often try to do something similar which can match up to the achievement in terms of selfie taken by their friends at the Eiffel Tower (Taneja, 2015).

Another important aspect which needs to be considered in context of obsession is the role of social media. Survey conducted by an online firm in 2014 revealed that more than 55% of the adolescent females that social media to a large extent makes them self-conscious about their appearance. Hence, good looking people continue taking selfies and share them on the social media platforms in order to get more likes and retweets (Gram, 2013). More people talk about it, more is the ego satisfaction a person gets. Indirectly such situation creates a vicious circle, where in order to get more compliments, comments etc. a person take more selfies and so on.

However one of the most important reasons behind obsession with selfies is the concept of instant gratification. Young generation is generally restless in their approach towards life, everything they want is instant in nature. Consider the process of taking a selfie. A person clicks the selfie, edits it, and uploads it on the Facebook, within minutes people start talking about it, commenting on it and liking it, which eventually helps the person who uploaded it in getting instant gratification or quick appreciation.
