Hey selfie lovers, check out these 15 worst times and places to take a selfie!
Selfies have taken over the world. Although at first, we looked at them as something that is a temporary trend and will fade away (planking, we still think of you), selfies popularity is becoming stronger with each passing day. In 2013 Oxford English Dictionary announced that “selfie” is the “Word of The Year” and caught us all by surprise.
The main reason for selfies popularity is social media. Before, people didn’t have the need to take pictures of themselves by themselves, because there was not that many popular platforms to post it on. Also, people spend time together much often, so there was always someone who could take a picture. With My Space, Facebook, and Instagram came the perfect excuse to indulge in this narcissist activity called selfie.
The only problem is that sometimes people can take it too far in order to make their selfies stand out, or they just don’t pay enough attention to their surroundings. Selfies have been accounted for as many as 54 deaths in India from 2014 to 2016. Since 2015 selfies are killing more people than sharks. If you ask us, no selfie is worth risking your life for.
