Selfie - Self-shot Photograph or Self-Portrait Photograph was termed the 'Word of the year 2013' by Oxford dictionary. Selfie initially became popular amongst the youngsters of age group - 18 to 35 and now have become a fad amongst all age groups. The joke used to be that a tech trend goes out of style once you see your grandparents use it. But the joke itself is becoming out of style as older end users are adopting technology pretty faster these days.
Youth of today are greatly inspired with the consciousness about - what their friends think about them, how they are perceived and accepted is quiet often related to the place they visit, the clothes they wear, the fashion quotient of the day, and overall personality. Ability to take their own pictures without someone else shooting it gives the users more privacy, confidence to experiment, decide their way to express and choice to share selectively. The Selfies capture all these traits which they can boast in the social media.
