Chinese taking selfie at the Chinese Lunar New Year Parade, Year of the Dog in New York City
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.
