Welcome to the Twenty-first Century where “brand yourself” is the call to action, whether people are more narcissistic is hotly debated, and interest in selfies is skyrocketing.
Social media allows people to share the minutiae of their lives with a single click and no thought whatsoever.
And billions do so in the belief that others will be interested.
In an oracular vision of the Twenty-first century Henry Ford said, “A bore is a person who opens his mouth and puts his feats in it.”
These days it’s more accurate to say, “A bore is a person who opens his social media and puts his feats in it.”
Some things are constant, while others change with the times.
