We are living in an age where we love to advertise ourselves. With so many social networking platforms, the individual has turned into a brand, and like a brand advertises, self-promotion has become the key to popularity. Aiding this trend for the past couple of years has been the ‘selfie’.
The selfie has become nothing short of a revolution when compared to the previous generation, which was extremely camera shy. Such was the rise of the selfie, that in November 2013, the Oxford English Dictionary announced ‘selfie’ as the word of the year.
