Everyone’s in on the selfie bandwagon now. Yes, we take those occasional duck-faced ones but we also use it for meaningful pictures like felfies (family selfies), petfies (pet selfies) and ussies (us/group selfies) that we take every other day. Selfies are finally being accepted as social norm sans the eye rolls. Cheese to that!

So it’s only natural that a selfie stick (which seems a tad bit over the top right now) is gonna sync in like a natural extension to this art of selfie-taking; like a tripod to a photographer.

And if you’re still thinking how mainstream and millennial this seems, wait till we list of the pros of using a selfie stick.

No shaky pictures either

That moment when you pose for a picture but hear the thud of the phone falling instead of the click of the camera. *gasps* Relax, that won’t happen anymore either; courtesy, a selfie stick.
