Selfie is a self-portrait photograph, especially the one you take with a small camera or mobile phone. Today, people talk about selfie without knowing much about how the word came into being. Many people still do not know that the concept of selfie is something that started so many years ago. In 1839, a man called Robert Cornelius took the first selfie ever, but it was not really called selfie, but the way it was taken looked so much like a selfie. Also, the first ever documented use of the word ''selfie'' was in September 2002, by an Australian man.

Selfies have become popular with teenagers and even older adults. However, sometimes, it can be dangerous to take a selfie. People will often want to take a selfie to show where they are located or the background, but they do not consider the danger of where they are located when taking a selfie. Some people like to take that risk.

Certain poses are considered to be popular poses for people who are taking selfies. One is a close-up of your face, but your face is to the side so that you can still see the background. Another type of selfie is called the one-third so that your eyes are in the first third of the shot. If you put your face in the middle of the shot, it will look like a school picture.
