Stuck on my SELF-IE

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News)- Just about anyone with a phone has taken at least one Selfie and if you surf social media some folks post multiple Selfies in just one day.

Why is it a craze that seems to transcend all backgrounds and ages?

It may not seem like it but Selfies have been around for a long time. The first Selfie was taken by Robert Corneilus in 1839.

He removed the lens cap from the camera, ran into the frame and stood still for a whole minute. Then he ran back to cover the camera lens.
     
Today anyone with a smart phone not only can take a Selfie but can almost instantly share it with the whole world.
