Named the word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries in 2013 and added to Merriam-Webster Dictionary as an official part of American lexicon in 2014, the selfie has taken social media by storm.
Selfie ( self·ie, noun): an image of oneself taken by oneself using a digital camera especially for posting on social networks
