The new media is changing how people relate when they attend events. Everybody wants too tell the world that “I was there some” by taking pictures and uploading them on these social media platforms. The days of waiting for a photographer to instruct you to turn your heard and nose is over, selfie has taken over.
Before last Saturday’s 4syte Music Video Awards started around 11, patrons were kept waiting behind gate whilst preparation was ongoing inside the conference center. That period of waiting to enter the auditorium gave patrons the opportunity to take selfies.
Almost everybody at the venue took his or her phone out to take a picture. Selfie moment which happened at the place looked like there was a prize tag on a selfie competition.
A selfie is a self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a digital camera or camera phone held in the hand or supported by a selfie stick.
