What is selfie or celfie?
What is selfie according to Queentulip.com?
SELFIE means the inner elf inside you.
SELFIE is no doubt defined by the person taking a selfie of himself or herself regularly. Selfie represents or masks an individual personality in the digital age exploring their smartphone's features filtered through one's taste of digital photographic effects from vintage to modern face-looks. That is why Facebook should have named Instagram as Facelook in the very first place!
SELFIE is not 100% personal identification due to filtering when it comes to censoring like Googles faces in one location from your Google albums archive.
What is the selfie revolution according to Queentulip.com?
CELFIE defined as any photo taken by your own cell phone whether yourself or your soul-food. CELFIE is the selfie revolution not only for the fitness commercialism but also those who eat soulful foods regarding organic foods from their organic gardening or local organic farmers market against the genetically modified organism or GMO radical kinds of foodie world system.

The beginning of the end of intelligent civilisation
Future sociologists use the selfie as an artefact for the end of times
by Future Sociologist
A strange phenomenon in which the photographer is also the subject of the photograph, in a subversive twist on the traditional understanding of the photograph. Usually conducted because the subject cannot locate a suitable photographer to take the photo, like a friend.
Hugh-man 1: Charles, my prince! I see you took a selfie last night! I found this out on the book of faces, on the interwebz. Ghastly stuff, those selfies!
Hugh-man 2: Leave Charles alone! If he doesn't want to have friends, that is his prerogative!
Charles mumbles inaudibly as they gag him and put him in the back of a van.

A picture was taken of yourself that is planned to be uploaded to Facebook, Myspace or any other sort of social networking website. You can usually see the person's arm holding out the camera in which case you can clearly tell that this person does not have any friends to take pictures of them so they resort to Myspace to find internet friends and post pictures of themselves, taken by themselves. A selfie is usually accompanied by a kissy face or the individual looking in a direction that is not towards the camera.

A ridiculous practice of narcissism
Girl: Taking pics in bathroom mirror. Sends it to guy
Guy: Gets pic of girl in "selfie"..oh brother
Guy: Stop sending me selfies!
The taking of a picture of yourself and posting it on Facebook because you have extremely low self-esteem and you need people to comment to tell you how hot or pretty you look. In reality, you just look desperate for attention. And no matter how attractive you might be, you still look pathetic. See also duck face/kissy face makes you look retarded.
My attractive friend takes a lot of selfies and won't hang out with people hotter than her.
An over used word meaning taking a picture of your self. This is mainly used by people who are too lazy to say "take a picture of myself" or people who get obsessed with everything that's popular until it gets over used. Selfies are usually posted on Instagram, Facebook, etc.
Sally: What are you doing?
Sarah: Taking selfies with my phone
Sally: Sarah, we are at the movie theater. Will you ever put that thing away?
A symptom of the current narcissistic epidemic whereby the subject takes a filtered, highly polished (often completely over-exposed) photograph of themselves and uploads it to instagram, facebook or some other social media outlet. Its often motivated by a need for adulation, attention or validation from ones "followers" or "friends" and is sometimes accompanied with some self-deprecating comment about how "shit" they look.
Girl - "Jeez, I've hundreds of friends on facebook, instagram and MySpace. Gonna have to do a clean out"
Guy - "Yeah? Strange that each and every Selfie churned out by yourself couldn't have been taken by one of your many adoring friends.
