The Rise Of the Selfie

Selfie Pope
Selfie is described by the Oxford Dictionary as "a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media”. 

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and SnaChat are littered with self-loving selfies for the world to see. 

This generation will certainly experience the repercussions of the selfie and its narcissistic manner. Never has a generation been so nonchalant with self-gratifying and self-promotional acts of love. 

The origin of the word goes back to 2002 when an Australian student (identity unknown) posted a picture from a recent party on an online forum. He wrote "Sorry about the focus, it was a selfie”. Since then the selfie has taken off in popularity – after all, even the Pope Francis has done it!
