Anthony: "#AfterSex"! "#AfterPoooop"! "#AfterWorkoutBuuuuutt"! "#AfterMurder"!
A Selfie Fiend is a character who is always taking selfies of themself. They're usually female and usually a teenager or 20-something year old. Even in inappropriate times, they'll want to take a selfie. Selfie Fiends often have a narcissistic interest in themself. They also tend to be fashion oriented.
Selfies have existed for decades but they really caught on in the 2000s when social media became popular. As a result, this is a newer trope. This trope is an evolution of Phoneaholic Teenager and often overlaps with it. The difference is that Selfie Fiends spend a lot of time on their phones taking pictures, while Phoneholic Teenagers usually use their cellphone to talk or text.
