Everyone’s Crazy About Selfie Sticks: Here’s Why They’re So Popular

custom selfie stick

Selfie sticks are phenomenally popular this year. The handy gadgets, used to take perfect selfies on smartphones, are being now being used everywhere from New York’s Times Square to Beijing. President Obama was recently spotted snapping pictures and video clips with a selfie stick on a trip to Alaska to raise awareness on climate change. Even NASA’s Curiosity rover used its robotic arm to take a stunning selfie of Mars this summer. Why are selfie sticks so red-hot right now? Here are a few reasons:

  • You can use a selfie stick to take a great photo of yourself from almost any angle.
  • It’s easy to get a clean shot: no blurry thumbs or arms will show up in the picture.
  • If you’re in a group, you can get everybody into the picture. The more the merrier!
  • It’s much easier to take a selfie using a selfie stick than it is using just your smartphone. If you have a selfie stick, you’ll have better control over the timing and setup of the shot.
  • When using a selfie stick, you don’t have to set a timer and rush back into place or ask a stranger, who may or may not be a good photographer to take the picture for you. Or you may not feel comfortable handing your device over to someone you don’t know. After all, unlike the analog cameras of old, our smartphones are the center of our digital lives and contain sensitive personal data like contacts, photos, and even digital wallets.
  • Selfie sticks are inexpensive, typically ranging from $14-$40.
