Oxford Dictionary has announced ‘SELFIE” word of the year for 2013.

It has been around for quite some time but the use of SELFIE has increased by 17000% in this year alone. Can you believe it? That is mind-boggling,right?

If you snap a shot of yourself  with your iphone, then you have just taken a selfie!

It is definitely an  iconic word and it helps us understand how important images are in our world these days.

What is the official definition?

A type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera that is planned to be uploaded onto facebook, my space or any other social media platform.

Long live the SELFIE!

If you take selfies, then share, tweet or like this post!

LEM…xo!
