For this module, I thought it would be fun to look into the top 10 most googled selfies of 2016. I found this list from Time Magazine.
The number one googled selfie was Kim Kardashian, who is known for her selfie-taking skills. She actually has a book full of selfies titled, “Selfish” this book is filled with selfies Kim took of herself and she said she likes to see her selfies because she knows who did her makeup, who she was with, and what she was doing. (Begley).
Among the list of top selfies of 2016 included Sharon Osbourne, Usher, and more celebrities. I then looked into another top selfies list from Time as well. This one included some more fun selfies like a husband taking a selfie with his wife in labor because she wanted to capture the look on their faces when their daughter was born so he did!
Another post has a selfie with the Pope and a little boy. Taking a selfie with the Pope is not something you get to do every day!
Some of our favorite selfies to look up are ones of Obama and other politicians because it puts them in a different, more personable light.
I lastly looked at the top 10 selfies in history on gidy.com These are all selfies that over the last few years are favorites to all googlers. This one at the oscars is a favorite because they managed to fit so many famous celebrities in one selfie!
Some people just take selfies of their everyday life like sitting in their car or maybe a selfie with their best friend. Others who many times are celebrities; take their selfies with their makeup artists, or the Eiffel Tower, or something expensive they just bought.
Tying back to what Kim Kardashian said on why she likes her selfies so much is because she can tell you everything that was happening at that moment, that is why we all take selfies too. We want to capture a moment and remember it and be able to show other people and enjoy it.
