71.First there were selfies. Then there were selfie sticks. Now comes a new phase: selfie booths,
which some stores are providing as a sort of next-generation photo kiosks. In the age of ubiquitous
social media, these booths and rooms seem to be the latest way to attract customers and build a brand.
At several stores of the optical company Warby Parker, customers unsure if those spectacle
frames really fit them can jump into the on-site selfie booth, snap off some images and email them to
friends and family for a second opinion. At Doomie′s, a vegetarian restaurant in Toronto, there is a
dedicated selfie room where persons stand in front of a mirror, take a photo and post it to social media,
often with a caption like ″just emerged from my food coma.″
When they were planning the restaurant, Doomie′s owners wanted clever ways to promote it and
differentiate it. They noticed younger people always want something on Facebook or the like. The
restaurant had an unused basement room, so they painted the floor white and had the walls prepared in
cartoons. Now at least half the restaurant′s first-timers under the age of 35 visit the selfie room. On
evenings when there is a wait for the table, patrons sometimes pass the time posing and posting.
When the restaurant was launched, it was covered by CBC and other news outlets just for the
selfie room, and it was a hot talking point on social media. The selfie room surely helps Doomie′s
While places like Doomie's in Toronto are setting aside designated areas for people to take
pictures with their own smartphones, other businesses are installing booths designed to take superior
selfies. Selfie lovers know that pictures taken in specially lit booths come out far better than a cellphone

Anthropologists tell us that each of us walks around inside “bubbles of personal space.” The size
of the bubble represents our personal territory, territorial imperative, or “personal buffer zone.” We
neither like nor tolerate it when someone invades our bubble. As we travel to different places around the
world, we learn that some cultural bubbles are larger or smaller than others. The American “bubble”
extends about 12 to 15 inches, and so we may stand a combined 24 to 30 inches apart. Scientists point
out this just happens to be an arm’s length away. One could stretch out his arm and put his thumb in the
other person’s ear.
Orientals, and especially the Japanese, stand even farther apart, anthropologist George Renwick
adds. When it comes to ordinary business or social situations, they have the largest bubbles of all.
However, in their own public settings, where crowding is impossible to avoid, they accept body contact
or just seem to ignore it, “touching without feeling.”
Latins and Middle Easterners, on the other hand, stand much closer than Americans. They may
stand, literally, toe-to-toe. They may even place a hand on the other’s forearm or elbow, or even finger
the lapel of the other person.
However, touch codes are changing all over the world. In the United States, politicians have
learned the value of touch. They frequently give two-handed handshakes, casually touch the elbow of
another, or lightly touch the back of the person standing next to them. “Pressing flesh” has become a
byword on political campaigns. Also, Japanese managers posted in the U.S. factories are steeling
themselves and learning to accept finger-crunching handshakes, back patting, and maybe even a friendly
arm around the shoulders for the softball team photo.
