Selfies, is it still considered a selfie if you are not alone in the photo?
like if you take a pic with your kid or dog, is that still a 'selfie?'
As far as I know, the word "selfie" indicates that you took the photo yourself. It has nothing to do with whether you are alone in the picture or not.
You have group selfies, where the person taking the picture is included in the group.
I always thought a "selfie" included the main person taking the photo, even if they were in a group. The photo of their dog or kid may be a selfie of them?
I think selfies should be one person in the pic, no one else including pets
I can't even believe this is important enough to ask. Sorry. I can't stand this narcissistic 'selfie' craze.
Yes, If you (manually) took the picture and you're also in the photo it's still considered a selfie. On the other hand if you use a (remote timer) with the camera on a platform or tripod to photograph yourself with the group it would not be considered a selfie.
do not try to fool yourself, scorpio! If you and a camera are alone in a room and somehow a picture of you is born of that union, and no one else was present, its a selfie, reguardless of technology
Helen, I said "photograph yourself (with) the group ". Families often did this at Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings. I've never taken a "selfie" in my life. Seems today most people can't wait to share their selfies with others!
I wouldn't get tied up in what you label it. I've never taken a selfie but the photo you see in the corner was taken by a lady sitting next to me at a conference using a selfie stick in which she took a photo of us together. I kept that photo, but made another copy and then cut her out of it - hence the image you see of me here taken last August.
To me this has never been a Selfie. To the lady who took it, yes, it's a selfie.
If you take a selfie with your girlfirend it is called gelfie, with a boyfirend belfie and with a group a gruopie.
I don't know what a selfie with your parents is ? A pelfie , maybe ?.
Also I don't know what a selfie with a complete stranger is called - strelfie ?

Lately as I hubhop, I am finding lots of photo only hubs. Are these considered low quality? It would seem that hubs need to have text of some kind besides a title. I started out flagging them as low quality, but I don't want to put moderators to extra work if these are considered acceptable.What do...
