The first association of a decade behind us is definitely a selfie. Selfie first appeared in the younger generations, then social media influencers made it popular by sharing it on social networks. Nowadays every smartphone has at least one selfie in its gallery.

However,  we have an assumption that in the coming years, selfies will gain its competition. Have you ever heard about a dronfie?

No? Let’s see what it’s all about.

When taking selfie photos, we quickly realized that our hands were too short for the photos where we wanted to capture ourselves being in interesting places or take a group picture with our friends. This situation led to a new invention – a selfie stick.

So we started using the selfie stick most often when travelling or trying to capture selfies with cultural landmarks, unique landscapes, concerts, festivals etc. Therefore, the selfie stick is always used when we want to see our surroundings next to ourselves, unlike ordinary selfies where something like this is just not possible.

Then the drones appeared and showed us a new way of filming and taking pictures. Drones initially used to record big events, such as weddings, festivals and other big gatherings.

That was the moment when we came up with the idea that it’s possible to create the perfect bird’s eye view of selfies, the so-called dronfie.

According to the Urban Dictionary dronfie represents self photograph or video using drone camera.

So, this word is similar to the word selfie. Today dronfie is mostly made by travel Instagram influencers for promotional purposes.
