Everyone knows that selfies have been a major Internet sensation in the last few years – we were taking them way before the term ‘selfie’ came onto the scene, which happened a year or two ago. Don’t deny it… we’ve all shared the odd selfie here and there on social media, and some even go viral on the Internet because of the situation they are taken in.

And these are exactly what we’ll demonstrate to you guys today. Here’s an awesome selection of the 18 most famous and important selfies of 2014. And don’t forget, 2015 is well on its way, which means there’s always next year to take a selfie that goes viral, if you haven’t already done so. Good luck, and get snapping!
