Selfies get the ‘In Memoriam’ it deserves at the Webby Awards
RIP selfies, 2012-2014. Never forget.
At the 18th annual Webby Awards ceremony last night, the selfie hit the next level of self-realization. Just days after earning a spot in Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, it suffered a quiet death. As much people have complained about selfies, most people weren’t even aware that it died until it received its own “In Memoriam” segment.
Usually, the award show tradition is reserved for performers and creators. This time, we mourn #FuneralSelfies and #DisasterSelfies—and who can forget the selfie President Obama took at Nelson Mandela’s funeral?
Farewell, selfies. We hardly knew thee—though in reality, we don’t expect you’re going anywhere.
