'Selfie' is named the Oxford Dictionaries 'Word of the Year'

On Monday evening, Oxford Dictionaries announced that the Internet-born noun is its international Word of the Year, beating out other of-the-moment verbs like binge-watch and twerk.

‘Selfie’ officially means “a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.”
