    Named Word of the Year by Oxford Dictionaries in 2013, 'selfie' has entered the lives of the masses quite some time ago and it seems has stayed there permanently. A tool for self-promotion and a quicker form of capturing moments of one’s life, selfies are also common among politicians, presidents and prime ministers.

    Sometimes updating your social media account with new photos, even means breaking strict parliamentary protocol.

    The rules of the UK House of Commons prohibit photography in the Commons chamber. However, it didn't stop the Chief Secretary of Treasury Liz Truss from taking a selfie with her fellow Treasury minister Mel Stride and later posting it on her Instagram account.
