New selfie app to ‘boost your ego’

New York, June 7 (IANS) Do you hesitate in posting all the selfies that you click on to Facebook or Instagram? You should not, says the developer of a new app that would let you show off those great selfies without shame.

The app is called “Ego” and it’s intended to be used only for selfies. It’s a free app in the App Store, abc11.com reported.

People take selfies everywhere these days, from the fancy restaurant to a leisurely walk in the evening.

“That’s human nature, you want to show people what you’re doing, cool things, and there isn’t always a photographer around to capture those moments,” app creator Sam Waters, a Duke University graduate, was quoted as saying.

Waters said people have so many selfies they haven’t posted because they feel embarrassed to post them on social media. So, Waters created an app just for selfies.

“You’re not trying to be vain about it, you’re just showing great moments that are happening in your life in a really convenient way,” Waters said.

You create a username and one word to describe yourself, and then start posting. You have a feed and people can see what you post, and they ‘Boost your Ego’ if they like your picture.

“On Ego, you can create a portfolio of these images and create a storybook of your life.”

Waters says there will be no more shame in taking selfies, or embarrassment in posting them to social media.
