What is a selfie? 

Selfie is the act of taking photos of yourself using a mobile camera. Selfies can use sticks but most are easier to use their own hands. Selfie is usually used to take pictures of one's own face, whether they want to show off beauty or just want to exist in posts on social media.

Sometimes there are places that are mediocre places, there doesn't even seem to be anything interesting there, but that place can be a viral conversation on social media because the place is very Instagramable. Sometimes people are disappointed, after coming to the place because it turns out that the place is not as good as the photos she/he saw on social media, but now that phenomenon is booming. If there is a place that is not Instagramable, why come there?
