Social media and the mobile web have given rise to a strange phenomenon called the selfie. But not everyone is familiar with the term, so here’s a brief definition.
Selfie: A picture of yourself, usually shared on any social networking website.
That’s it, really. But there’s so much more meaning behind why we do it, and why it’s become such a massive trend.
Everyone takes selfies, but the younger crowd seems to be especially involved in the trend – mainly because teens and the 18 to 34 demographic are heavier digital users than their older counterparts.
Some selfies are extreme close-ups, others show part of an arm held straight outward and a few of the great ones even feature the subject standing in front of a bathroom mirror so that they can get a full body shot of their reflection. There are lots of selfie trends, and these are some of the most common.
Since social media is the driving force of most selfie activity, younger kids interested in staying connected to their friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, crushes or colleagues are more active in sharing selfies on a regular basis.
Here is our pick of Top 5 selfie trend.

2. The pout selfie
The pout selfie is the best-known variety of selfie. It is by no means the most common variety, but before the selfie, the duck-face wasn’t easily identifiable. Once selfies became popular, we realized that when people thought they were making themselves look more like models, they were actually making themselves look like ducks. Though the duck-face selfie looks ridiculous, it actually comes from a very sensible place.
The most attractive among us, models and actresses, have pouty lips. So, we strain our lips to emulate the puffy-lipped beauties of stage and screen. Hence, the duck-face selfie.
