The photographs we are constantly taking and sharing form our social connections, reflect on and transform the social hierarchy and even who we are, how we perceive ourselves, what are our desires and what we want to remember. Nathan Jurgenson, through his analysis on the selfie phenomenon or the popularity of vintage filters and the functioning of social media as modern archives, arrives at what could be termed the unconscious habits of cyberspace users: they satisfy the need for “followed”, but above all controlled self-presentation, even though they still have the format of trying to capture the most beautiful moment.
