Somewhere around the time camera phones became popular, people decided it was cool to take pictures of themselves and post them all over social media.
Now selfies have taken over the Internet making it practically impossible to scroll through your feed without seeing at least a few girls making duck faces or showing off their backsides in the bathroom mirror.
While no two selfies are exactly alike, most of these self-fulfilling photos can be placed into specific selfie categories.
Some people snap selfies to remind everyone how pretty they are and validate the fact they're hot AF.
Others take advantage of the self-facing camera on their phones to show off their fur babies, tell the world what they are eating for lunch or let people know they actually go to the gym (even if the bulk of their workout involves posing in the mirror).
Yep, the options are pretty much endless, there really is a selfie out there to suit everyone's vanity needs.
