Selfie anyone?

Unless you live on Mars, you must have heard about the selfie. What? You haven’t!!

Well, in case you didn’t know, the term comes from “self-portrait,” taken with a camera (preferably a smartphone). In most cases, once you have taken your selfie, is then posted on social networks.

The aim of the selfie is to let your contacts know where you are, to share your mood of the day, or to publish selfies of yourself in funny situations.

This new practice has become so widespread that dedicated mobile apps have been specifically created (Shots of me, Snapchat, etc.).

So, have you succumbed to the selfie yet? But beware: all trends have their drawbacks! It is our duty to warn you not to abuse the duckface selfie!
