The rise of selfie phenomenon has gained an approving nod from Apple as well. The company has added a selfie section in the App Store for both desktop and Mobile.
The selfie section of the App Store has popular apps like Justin Bieber’s shots, Snapchat, Picr and Facetune and some other apps that are related to taking selfies.
People have been taking self shots right from the time when cameras were invented but the word selfie gained a worldwide acceptance in 2002. Oxford English Dictionary has called it the Word of the year 2013. While defending its decision, Oxford English Dictionary said: “If it is good enough for the Obamas or the pope, then it is good enough for Word of the Year.”
The selfie word has gained recent popularity due to many happenings like actors taking their selfies at the Oscars etc.
