Friday is National Selfie Day


(WIVB) — It’s time to take out your phone, because today is National Selfie Day!

It may be hard to believe, but selfies actually existed before social media.

According to the Library of Congress, a photographer took the first selfie in 1839. Of course, it wasn’t called a “selfie” at that time.

The word wasn’t added to the Oxford Dictionary until 2013.
