It is a photograph that an individual takes of him or herself, and or with someone else typically taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.

"Perhaps the emotive selfie is simply the currency of communication for a new generation, and an increasingly valuable one as face-to-face communication." - New York Times

"Selfie? There's an app for that." - USA Today

"Selfie is for people to be able to share life’s everyday moments rather than a filtered, curated view of a life that seems perfect." - NBC News
