A selfie is a picture you take of yourself and post to the Internet. Most people take selfies with a cell phone camera. Common posting sites are Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
One recent Twitter selfie became very famous, very fast. It was taken at the 2014 Academy Awards in Hollywood, California. The host of the show, Ellen DeGeneres, tweeted the selfie. It pictured her and some of the big stars at the Oscars. You can listen and read about it on our American Mosaic program.
But what about your selfies? Do you take them? Where do you post them? Have you ever posted one that you later wished you had not? Are selfies a big part of the culture in your country?
