Selfie - Word of the Year 2013

The word 'Selfie' has been crowned as the Word of the Year 2013, by Oxford University Press - the publisher of Oxford dictionaries.
Used to represent self-taken camera portraits - selfie camera shots have been around since the advent of first cameras, but have gained phenomenal popularity with the rise of social-media and mobile devices. So much, that research has statistically found the usage of the word has increased by 17,000 % since last year.
Here is my selfie, to mark the occasion.
