Guest: W. Keith Campbell, Professor of Psychology, University of Georgia There is no such thing as a selfie-free zone.

Selfie-taking occasionally even turns tragic when someone loses their footing trying to capture the perfect shot on a hiking trail, for example. Are selfies turning us all into narcissists? Or maybe it’s just that social media is tapping into a narcissistic streak society already had in spades?
