A selfie is a self-portrait photograph featuring the photographer, typically taken with either a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. Selfies are often shared on social networking
services such as Facebook, Instagram , Snap Chat and Twitter. They are usually flattering and made to appear casual.
Most selfies are taken with a camera held at arm's length or pointed at a mirror, rather than
by using a self-timer.
