Without the smartphone and social media, the classic selfie might not exist. While self-portraits have been around since artists first started painting them, the fun-filled selfies of social media are a modern trend. So trendy in fact, that the word was added to the Oxford Dictionary:

“selfie: a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media.”

While not everyone loves taking selfies, perhaps this national selfie day you might want to give it a shot and experiment with your first or millionth selfie and see where this silly holiday takes you.
