Who could have guessed that selfie sticks would become so popular? This time last year, only a few people had even heard of one. But now they are everywhere and as with any pop culture trend that gains popularity quickly, there are a few people who forget to take others into consideration.
We get that they are fun and take the selfie to a whole new level, but be considerate of others and think before you use it.
How Not to Use a Selfie Stick:
1. Breaking the Rules
Museums all over the world are banning the use of selfie sticks because careless visitors have left marks on walls and even art! If they aren’t allowed, leave them in your bag.
2. At a Concert
While it is super cool to snap the perfect selfie with your favorite artist in the background, those standing around you probably aren’t as excited. You are blocking their view and after a few drinks. you may accidentally poke someone!
3. In Traffic
Why yes, that is the perfect of that beautiful landmark. But when you are standing in the middle of a busy sidewalk or even street, you are holding people up! Just don’t.
4. At Weddings
Do we really have to say this? A selfie, while the bride and groom are kissing, is just tasteless. Not to mention, you may get in the way of the photographer they actually paid to capture that moment.
