Hello... Selfies is a side project from a team at Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com. They were working on a photo app for Gravatar and started having a lot of fun taking selfies and sharing them back and forth with each other, so they decided to release a Selfies app to see if others might enjoy it as well. The app is in its infancy. You can take selfies, caption and filter them, and share them into a stream that can be seen by all other users. You can react to other people’s selfies with your own images or captions, which often leads to a fun back and forth that turns selfies into mini stories. We made an effort to find the “quickest time to fun” in this app – get users to post and enjoy images right away instead of making them go through the numbing series of sign ups, logins, Facebook & Twitter connections, etc that are common in other apps. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
