#QFWSelfie: Your Selfie, Your Style
Hello Darlings, From the moment Apple released iPhone 4 in 2010 with a front-facing camera our lives have forever been changed thanks to a digital phenomenon now know as a selfie! A simple act of snapping an image of oneself typically with a cell and then sharing online has come to define our age. The selfie has become as much of our culture as the iPhone, Miley's twerking and hashtags. While overindulging in selfies should come with a warning, all in all they are great fun! No longer do we need a tripod, a helping hand or even a reason for a picture; it is as simple as a snap and go when the mood strikes.
How did a selfie come about? It all started back in 2004 when the usage of #selfie first appeared on Flickr but took almost a decade to catch on. Thanks to the rise of Instagram in 2011 and introduction of hashtags and filters that #selfie started to grow in demand. 2013 became the year of #selfie and the term "Selfie" was officially added to Oxford Dictionary. While we in North America love our selfies, it is Australians that steal our thunder. Selfies are most popular in Australia followed by US and Canada. Now that was a surprise :)
