Description : In a time where you can slap a filter onto any imperfection, women have begun admitting to feeling withdrawn from one another and experiencing huge feelings of inadequacy. But it's time to bring back some balance. It's time women were given the space to share real experiences without fear of judgement or of being defined by them. It's time we saw some evidence that we are not alone in our less than perfect, often challenging lives.'Filter Free' is a collection of stories written by women who've experienced real adversity and are ready to drop their filters. Their stories are emotionally charged. They speak of their triumphs and they highlight the incredibly raw strength of women.Covering serious issues such as divorce, rape, miscarriage and alcoholism, these brave women have come together in a bid to help reconnect us in a world of social disconnect.
Description : In the year 2013, ‘selfie’ was named word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries in recognition of dramatic changes in frequency, prominence, and register of the term. This drastic increase in selfie-taking was spurred by two factors. The first was the advent of smartphones equipped with front cameras and preview screens that made it easy to compose a photographic self-portrait by a process of deliberately exploring one’s image, choosing a pose, and finally taking the picture. The second key change contributing to the rise of the selfie age was the increasing availability of internet connections. It is estimated that about 50% of the world population has access to the internet today (2018; https://www.internetworldstats.com). At the end of the past century, this percentage was a mere 1%. The growth of the internet infrastructure simultaneously spurred the development of social network applications such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram, providing accessible media for sharing photographs including photographic self-portraits. However, despite their tremendous reach and popularity, selfies have so far received relatively little attention by the scientific community, especially within psychology. Thus, we proposed a Frontiers in Psychology Research Topic to expand empirical and theoretical work on the massively popular, yet scientifically unexplored, phenomenon of the selfie. The articles published in this eBook offer a multifaceted insight into current scholarly work on this topic.
