‘Selfie Olympics’ parade takes Facebook, Instagram, Twitter by storm
The word ‘selfie’ gained such popularity and notoriety in 2013 that the Oxford English Dictionary made it the word of the year. And even though the competition has the word Olympics in it, it is hard to imagine that the billions of people will stop taking pictures of themselves anytime soon.
However, to make an ‘Olympics’ selfie, it’s not enough to just look good, there must zeal and energy and everything constituting the motto “Faster, Higher, Stronger, Twitter.” Competitions are held in such fields as door scaling, air hovering, basin fitting – whatever!

Facebook likes are growing by the hour – Twitter posts are being added by the minute, with tens of thousands appearing in the course of the day.
However, the selfie storm did include some dangerous stunts, as the fun competition seemed to turn into a full-on war for originality and extreme ideas.
Below are RT’s picks of the fun photos (of dressed people, and this is a warning)… please forgive us.
