My children live in wonderful times; they have only known a world with selfies.

First use of the word selfie: 2002. “Um, drunk at a mates 21st, I tripped ofer and landed lip first on a set of steps. … And sorry about the focus, it was a selfie.” First phone with front-facing camera: 2003. “The Sony Ericsson Z1010 is more than just a phone that does video calls, it is a multimedia package in your pocket.”
