The explosion of selfies
The North American president Barack Obama, Pope Francis, Hollywood stars and millions of citizens around the world have joined the boom of selfies: self-photos that in the new digital culture make it possible to communicate moods, contexts, situations, desires and needs, among others. At PSiNET we have analyzed this phenomenon, and throughout 2014 Eulàlia Hernàndez participated in various articles and discussions on the topic, among which we can highlight:
