the practice of taking a self-portrait and posting it on Instagram to show your followers what you look like in case they forgot, even though you posted a selfie two fucking days ago. Many selfies include the stupid ass fucking duck face and/or include a really fucking stupid quote in the caption.

Attention seeking photo taken of yourself while pointing the camera at your face with arm streched out or in front of a mirror. This activity proves you have no friends or are in need of approval or validation.
Can you guys help me pick a filter?
I don't know if I should go with XX Pro or Valencia
I wanna look tan
What should my caption be?
I want it to be clever
How about "Livin' with my bitches, Hashtag LIVE"
I only got 10 likes in the last 5 minutes
Do you think I should take it down?
LET ME TAKE ANOTHER SELFIE

A picture taken by ones self, including 50% or more of that persons face. Pictures taken of other body parts or NOT including 50% or more of that persons face is not considered a selfie.
Timo took a picture of his boobs and mouth but did not show more than 50% of his face. Therefore he did not take a selfie.

Originally used to refer to a picture of yourself, taken by yourself.

'Selfie' now refers to a picture taken by anyone at all with literally any amount of people in it, provided you (the uploader) are in it as well.
You: "el oh el cute selfie of me and my entire graduation cohort"

"Getting real tired of your shit Samantha"

Most commonly, Selfie describes a digital photograph taken by a person of themselves, which will then be uploaded to a social media site such as Facebook.

Alternatively, from the perspective of a male adult, Selfie may be used to refer to the act of masturbation.
Female usage: "Oh my god Jake, the selfie that I uploaded to Facebook this morning has already received 57 likes. I told you I should try modeling."

Male usage: "I had a selfie before school this morning, and then another between school and work. I can hardly walk."
