Is the selfie a lost art? The Webby Awards think so!

On Monday, The Webby Awards posted the above video to their YouTube channel following the announcement of all the winners for their 2014 edition.

For those who don't know about the awards, The Webbys pretty much validate the Internet. Yup, no big deal. Winning a Webby means you have actually won the Internet in your specific domain, which is really sweet, right?

The people at the Webbys are also fine connoisseurs and forecasters of the Web's future and its trends and they say the selfie is dead. It's over.

After peaking from 2012 to 2014, the act of taking a quick snapshot of your face and uploading it to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat or whatnot is now declining in popularity. We'll blame it on the abuse of bad selfie trends (#duckface and #funeralselfie for instance) and on the fact that it's not as new and exciting anymore!

Are you ready to bid adieu to the selfie?
