The Top 11 tragic selfies taken before tragedies to happen

Being a social media business person I can’t overlook the trends in the industry and one of them is #selfie.

It’s an established habit now to take selfies. I have to admit I’n not a lot into this wave but I do it from time to time. Unfortunately, for some of us a selfie is the last thing to be done before a major strategy.
