A selfie (/sɛlf/) is a self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a smartphone which may be held in the hand or supported by a selfie stick. Selfies are often shared on social networking services such as Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. They are for vanity, usually flattering, and are casual in nature (or made to appear casual). "Selfie" typically refers to self-portrait photos taken with the camera held at arm's length, as opposed to those taken by using a self-timer or remote. A selfie, however, need not include a sole individual. "Selfies" may include multiple subjects as long as the picture is actually being taken by one of the subjects featured in the photo.
