Have you ever thought about what exactly is a selfie? Of course, we all know it’s a photo you make of yourself. But is there something more? Can a selfie become more than just a snapshot for remembering the moments or fishing for comments? A research from Sony Mobile shows that selfies might become much more than they are now. They may become applicable in banking, shopping, healthcare and many other situations.
Sony Mobile and Futurizon conducted a research and surveyed 6,500 European consumers in the UK, France, Germany and Spain. The results show that the consumers are ready to embrace a selfie as a tool in plenty of situations. They see a “vast number of potential applications” of selfies in the next five years.
