In the past decade or so, social media has taken over and has enabled people to reach unprecedented levels of popularity. It all began with MySpace, then came Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, Tinder, and Snapchat. From the start, self-disclosure has been at the core of every large, successful social media outlet–and the trend continues.
In the past year, selfies, and photo-sharing apps have become increasingly popular. In a 2014 Pew Research Center Poll survey, more than half of all millennials have taken a selfie and shared it online. In fact, in 2013, “selfie” was the word of the year.
Selfies have become effective communication channels to the same degree as traditional messaging. Facial expressions are a very critical element to verbal communication. The act of capturing ourselves in a photograph as a way to communicate will only continue to grow for the foreseeable future. This has become especially true with the increasing prevalence of the selfie app, which takes advantage of this trend. One such newly launched app for the iOS platform, SelfMe, promises to be a major player.
SelfMe “is a fun and easy way to celebrate yourself by sharing selfies with friends and the world.” Users are able to discover trending selfies by searching categories, hashtags, places, and within a user’s group of friends. Users are able to like and comment on other’s selfies, apply filters, use the camera’s timer, and chat with friends to stay connected to one another.
Who takes the best selfies around you? It’s time to find out! See the trend and be the trend by checking out this new app: www.selfme.social
