In today’s hyper-competitive world, everyone is competing for the same thing – at one time or another, participated in a wildly hip, fun, technological craze that has everyone saying one, two, three – SELFIE! Yeah! yeah!!, I get it.

Top 5 Best Selfie Apps in Android and iOS Perfect for Instagram Users

Everybody loves taking selfies. Selfie is defined by Oxford Dictionaries as “a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website”.
The word ‘Selfie’ was coined in Australia in the olden days (2002). A drunk guy posted a blurry image of himself and posted it on social media for all to see. I’m sure there were many selfies before then, but they weren’t documented on the internet, and as we now know, that means they don’t count. Selfie was awarded ‘Word of the Year’ in 2013, which pretty much means we are all guilty of taking a few “SELFIES” but what we DO in each selfie has a different meaning.
