'Selfie' explores online addiction, embarrassment

•, By Veronique Dupont

TV show "Selfie," which launched on ABC this week and the film "Men, Women and Children," which hits the big screen later this month, both reflect the ravages wreaked by being constantly online.

The ABC network's show depicts Eliza Dooley, who works in marketing but who is a social networking "superstar" due to her 263,000 "followers" on the Instagram photo sharing service.

She shares with them her every move, and posts pictures of every meal and herself in every state of undress. She measures people based on their "friends" or "followers" on the Internet.

But her life is upended when she finds herself a laughing stock online due to an unfortunate viral video.
