The World of Selfies

I think you’d all agree with me that everyone, ok maybe not e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e, but most certainly a high percentage of everyone’s Facebook friends has taken to taking selfies of themselves. Am I right? It seems to be the latest craze. And it is certainly the latest ‘in’ word as it made the Oxford Dictionary’s Word of the Year¬†for 2013.

Anyway most of us would think that this craze started a few years ago when digital cameras and mobile phones with cameras made it easier to take photographs of ourselves. Wrong!

In fact selfies seems to be a whole lot older that that … a LOT older.
