Watch the spread of the #selfie over the last 18 months - Trendsmap Blog

Watch the spread of the #selfie over the last 18 months - Trendsmap Blog | Social News | Scoop.it
We take selfies for granted these days, but even just 18 months ago you could go for hours without seeing one.

Barack Obama and David Cameron caused a stir by posing for a selfie at the Nelson Mandela’s memorial the next month, and in January 2014 we had the Twitter endorsed #SelfieOlympics. But of course, it was Ellen and her showbiz pals who really kicked it into the mainstream at the Oscars in March this year. This also seems to broadly match the volume of searches for ‘selfie’ over on Google Trends.
