GMU celebrates the 'Selfie'

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Utah) - Selfie is the 2013 Oxford Dictionaries word of the year! The GMU family celebrated the announcement with selfies!
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Utah) - Selfie:  "a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website" is the 2013 Oxford Dictionaries word of the year.

Oxford Dictionaries said the word has increased 17,000 percent in just the past year.

The word can be traced back to a post on an Australian online forum in 2002.  The post read: "Um, drunk at a mates 21st, I tripped ofer [sic] and landed lip first (with front teeth coming a very close second) on a set of steps. I had a hole about 1cm long right through my bottom lip. And sorry about the focus, it was a selfie."

If you watch Good Morning Utah, you may know Emily hates Selfies!  So the morning crew, surprised her with selfies of everyone in the GMU Family!
