Definition: selfie


A still picture of one's self, typically taken with a smartphone that has a front-facing camera. A video selfie is a video recording rather than a still image. People take so many selfies these days that a phone's front-facing camera is often called a "selfie camera."

Selfie Stick
A selfie stick is a telescopic pole that extends the smartphone out several feet. It lets people take a more natural selfie without their arm showing. In addition, more background scenery can be photographed when the camera is extended farther out. See selfie drone, ballot selfie, front-facing camera and theftie.
