June 21st is National Selfie Day!As you might’ve guessed, this day wouldn’t exist without smartphones. After all, selfies weren’t even a thing until we had the ability to take them – and social media to post them on. Is this a “new thing?” Yup – this unofficial holiday has only been around since 2014.
On National Selfie Day, we are encouraged to take creative (and hopefully, appropriate) selfies and post ‘em online.
And by the way? Selfie IS an actual word – as in, it’s in the Oxford dictionary – and thanks to selfie sticks and multi-functional camera phones, groupies (aka group selfies) may soon get their own day, too!
