2013′s Word Of The Year Is “Selfie”

Another sign the year is beginning to wind down.  The word of the year has been revealed.  The editors of the Oxford Dictionaries  have chosen “selfie” as the word of the year for 2013.  All you shutterbugs who enjoy taking pictures of yourselves know what a “selfie” is.  For those who don’t, it’s a picture which you take of yourself, usually with a webcam or smartphone, and then upload it to a social media website.

Even though “selfie” isn’t a new word, it’s not necessary in order  to be named the word of the year.  According to usatoday, the word “selfie” has been around since 2002.

However, what puts it at the top of the list of words for the year is the number of times the word “selfie” has been used in the last year.  Since 2012, the use of the word “selfie” has increased by 17,000%.

Even if you’re not taking selfies, think of all the celebrities who have over the past year.  Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Mariah Carey, just to name a few.

Ready, set, smile and take that “selfie!”
