People want to be remembered, and I think on some level everyone takes pictures of themselves to not just remember that moment, but to have something tangible to be remembered by because they are keenly aware of the impermanence of life.

Good point. I think there’s more. Selfies are not just to be remembered by others, but to remember ourselves. I look at old pictures of myself to see how much I have or have not changed, and to remember my life at that time. Its not automatically about getting attention from others and there’s nothing inherently vain or evil about it :0)
