“Selfie” was selected as the word of 2013 by Oxford Dictionaries, little did they know the obsession with the selfie will continue through 2014. Owing to Ellen DeGeneres mega star group selfie at the Oscars, the internet has probably seen more hash tags of the word than ever before.
While Ellen had glamazons getting all excited to be a part of Twitter history, US President, Obama’s selfie at Nelson Mandela’s funeral created a controversy!
Not to be left behind, everyone in Digital India is trying to cash in on the craze. While we are working on a post on ‘what NOT to do in a selfie’, here is a consolidation of some interesting things going on with the selfie.
1. You can walk the ramp with Deepika Padukone by uploading a selfie!
2. You can win designer ensembles, digital cameras as well as celebrity makeovers from Lakme Fashion Week by participating in their Google + contest and using their tag #styleselfie
3. The good people at Wooplr made a list 40 top selfies inclusive of the famous or infamous duck face 🙂
4. After all this, how could we not include our own selfie!
