This era has produced many new terms one of which is "Selfie".

First, let's take a look how Wikipedia defines "selfie':

A selfie is a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. In August 2013, the term selfie also made its debut in Oxford Dictionaries Online's quarterly update where it is defined as "a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website."[1] Selfies are often associated with social networking and photo sharing services such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Vine where they are commonly posted or sent. In the Korean entertainment industry the word selca (short for "self camera") is used to describe photos taken of oneself.[2][3] They are often casual, are typically taken either with a camera held at arm's length or in a mirror, and typically include either only the photographer, or the photographer and as many people as can be in focus. Selfies taken that involve multiple people are known as "group selfies".

Oh yes, taking selfie photos is also one of my fave things to do when I can. I like to take photos of me wearing makeup to see how I progress as an aspiring makeup artist. My take on selfie(s) is simple: If you feel confident posting your pic then do it. Afterall, life's too short. Enjoy. 

You only live once (YOLO).
