Why do Pinoys take pics everywhere?

hermeowninihermeownini PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
Selfies are one thing pero bakit kailangan bawat sulok ng lugar na pinuntahan, kasama ang sarile?

Maybe photo op dahil nasa vacation? But how do u explain yung may picture ng sarili na ang background hindi naman picturesque, like yung malaking Wal-Mart sign. O kaya puro snow or snow bank. O kaya big brand names like Coach. I don't get it like, meron bang binili from there kaya nagpa-pic sa harap ng malaking word? I mean, whats the motive :lol:

It's always a WTF moment kapag mga Pinoy ang ka-FB...not my own words... :*)

    Because they don't like Target, K-Mart, Food 4 Less, SwapMeet. Farmer's Market (depends on area and schedules), and flea markets (set up next to flea circus and a very dirty dog). :glee:
  • People like to document their whereabouts and state of mind on social media.

    Bottom line: it's none of our business what other people do on their social media. If we don't like it, we can remove them from our news feed.

    But they look the same in every pic :*)

    Some people document their travels without them in it. It's the hottest people that do this too, how ironic.

    Why should they look different in every photo?

    For me! :*) Duh :lol:

    Why should they be in every pic though, like we're all convinced they bought gulay and isda. There's a significant amount of Pinoys who do this religiously. There's stuff I don't understand about the Jamaican culture but you don't see me addressin them here. It's a plain inquiry. Nobody's mad, bro.

    Ive long given up on photos, I just do a minute round video of a place, and that's it. Pics are just for the most important/iconic structures. I just choose the Top 10, and that's it.

    It takes away the fun kasi in sightseeing, imbes na ma appreciate mo yung lugar, naka tingin ka sa camera or iphone.

    Saka ako mismo nasusuya pag naka 50 or more pics na ang album.

    however, I let others be. If I dont like what they do, or if na-o OAn nako sa selfie, i just dont look at their albums anymore, maybe first 10 pics in the album, like ng isa or dalawang pic, comment isa ng, "wow, what a nice shot" :glee: and thats it.

    but for us to demand/impose that they modify their pics or habits. i think that's crossing the line.

    kung ayaw mo sa style nila, unfriend them, but you cant tell others what to do in their own house, with their own lives, (unless it affects you significantly in some way) and even their selfie and facebook habits.:hiya:

    Sayin people can't change their behavior for me? That's the first time I've heard that in 30 years :*)

    para hindi ka na mabwisit sa kanila!

    You can but that's super stressful. Good luck with that.

    Gawin mo na lang iyan kapag may boundaries ka na nilampasan nila, iyung tipong you felt really violated. Pero kung pictures lang sa FB para mag-alburoto? that's retarded.

    and like I said earlier, unfollow mo lang sila. friends pa rin kayo sa FB, pero hindi mo makikita mga pino-posts nila. madali lang namang gawin iyon. huwag mong sabihin na pati iyon, tinatamad ka? less hassle nga iyon kesa ide-demand mo sa kanila na huwag kumuha-huga ng mga letrato eh.

    The plain and simple answer is: BECAUSE THEY WANT TO.

    Bwisit? Nooooo

    My husband brought this up a month ago. It's a legit Filipino thing. Travel pics and selfies are not as confusing as pictures in odd places lookin like blahh (this includes an album full of snow and dandelions)..whots da bladclot motive, mite :*)

    i could care less if people wanna take pictures in front of a Walmart sign or whatnot.

    but what i hate the most? yung sasamahan ko ang mga visting or holidaying folks. yung magpapasama sa Google HQ, Facebook HQ, Apple HQ, etc. tapos pupunta sa mga signs tapos "picture picture" sila. tapos akala makakapasok sila sa loob.

    sarap sipain.

    target is more sosyal naman than walmart.:glee:

    re. the question of the ts,

    bragging rights na lang yun. natural lang naman yun sa tao.

    and thats what FB is for.

    wala naman atang nag abroad na di nag pa pic.

    in fairness, nagtitipid pa nga yang nagpapa pics na lang sa mga tapat ng Walmart, Macy's , Belk etc.

    marami din yung sa kapamilya lang tumitira habang nagbabakasyon sa US, kaya local attractions and shops na lang pinupuntahan,

    mahal na rin naman kasi yung pamasahe pa lang, round trip and pasalubong pa.

    so for me, ok lang naman yun.

    napapa ngiti pa ngako pag ganun.

    when i saw my h.s. teachers visited California, I was so happy for them, sabi nila kahit San Francisco lang and sa free attractions lang mapunta, they're happy na,

    and im genuinely happy and thrilled for them.
    siguro kung gusto mo ang isang tao, mas matutuwa ka para sa kanila kesa maiinis, when they post something about their life.

    So getting ur credit card hacked like last year after Black Friday weekend and going through the trouble of reclaiming lost funds, and having card replaced is considered sosyal. No wonder you taught the senate. :lol:
  • nikkilovenikkilove PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    it was just a sarcastic joke, for those whod think shopping in these marts make them sosyal already, as you notice, there's a glee at the end.

    you should know me by now, that i dont care about those stuff.

    and ftr, i have protection features in my cards, so that's unlikely to happen with me.
  • ang selfie ay matagal ng ginagawa kahit na noong hindi pa uso ang digital camera, I mean unaffordable pa ang digital camera. kapag ang mga family members o kaibigan o ka-close na kakilala ko ang nag-picture taking sa pinuntahan nila ako pa ang namimilit at excited na makita ang mga pictures nila. Pero kapag hindi ko kakikilala o ka-close ang nagpapakita ng mga pictures nila, I couldn''t care less. wala akong interest sa excitement ng iba na makita ang mga selfies or whatever trashy pictures ng ibang hindi ko kakilala. ngayon a dime a dozen na ang digital camera, OMFG. Pati ba naman sa account page mo, grrrrr, may magpo-post ng selfies o pictures ng pagkain ng ibang taong hindi mo kakilala may kasama pang comments! Ngayon, deactivated na FB ko.

    iba kasi noon kaysa ngayon. noon naii-share lang ang pictures sa mga interasado lang. ngayon, dahil it is digital age, even if you are not interested, there's no way avoiding seeing others selfie-ing their ar$e

    You'll never know. :naughty:

    Even a friend inside Microsoft got hacked and lost $2000. Luckily the bank verified the incident and replaced the money.
