  5. 5 rules for taking #selfies on Instagram (if you must)

    First, let’s define what a selfie is. Just so we’re clear:
    1. It’s a picture with your face in it.
    2. You took the photo yourself. Another human being was not involved.
    3. It is shared on the internet — Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or whatever.

    Now, the rules:

    1. Selfies are off-limits for anyone over 21*
      Are you allowed to legally consume alcohol in the United States of America? If so, you are too old to go fishing for compliments with a self-portrait. Leave the selfies for Snapchatting teens who can use the word “ratchet” in a sentence without Googling “ratchet” and “urban dictionary” at the same time.

      *Exceptions: Fashion bloggers, models, and anyone else who makes a living off of their appearance is exempt from this rule. So is anyone 21 or over who’s using the selfie to communicate something new to friends. New haircut: Great! New glasses? Snap away! GoofyMovember mustache? By all means, share. Same old you? Put the camera down.

    2. The following words and phrases are banned from selfie captions:

      "Ready for bed""Good morning!"
      "Hitting the gym"
      "#GQ" (LOL)
      "Work hard, play hard"

    Essentially, ask yourself, “What would Kim Kardashian do?” Then do the opposite.
