It’s that time of the year for the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year. The votes have been counted and the Oxford Dictionaries word of 2013 is… “Selfie”

Pronunciation: /ˈsɛlfi/
(also selfy)

noun (plural selfies)


  • a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website:occasional selfies are acceptable, but posting a new picture of yourself every day isn’t necessary

So how long until that red underline will go away when I upload my #selfie today? Whatever, I guess it’s better than last years word “YOLO”… :/
