Word of the year!

Oxford Dictionaries has announced it’s Word of the Year 2013.  The word they chose is one that has only appeared in the the last year and a half, “selfie.”  (a photo you take of yourself and then share it on Facebook or other social platforms.)  Can’t quite believe the choice myself, but the practice of taking a selfie has been semi-normalised by the Pope and other famous celebrities!

The Verge has a nice article about the announcement.
