I've been taking "selfies" for more than a decade. Back in 2005, we just called them photos, except we pointed the camera at ourselves instead of the world, and we felt a small but appropriate surge of vanity doing so. It was just fun. Then selfies became a thing, and now you can't take a photo of yourself without feeling like a self-centered 12 year old teenager bragging about his/her latest hairdo on Instagram. It's impossible to walk down the streets of some cities without seeing someone trying to lend you a selfie stick for a few bucks, or to go to a restaurant or pub without seeing a group of friends taking selfies together, or really to engage in any activity without having someone suggest taking a selfie... because selfie or it didn't happen, amirite?
While having dinner last month at a local restaurant, I swear the woman sitting on the table next to me took more selfies than breaths of air. I wish this app was available then, because I could have walked up to her and suggested it. At least she'd have made a couple of bucks from her efforts. So what's Pay Your Selfie? Well, it's a service that pays for your selfies. Think of it as Google Opinion Rewards for selfies. You see a series of missions or tasks, each with its own payout between $0.20 and $1. You upload the corresponding selfie to the service and get paid. There's no additional fee for prettier or more original selfies, you'll always get paid the same as everyone else using the service. Once you have accumulated over $20, you can ask for a check to be mailed to you.
If you know Kim Kardashian's phone number, can you please text her a link to the app? Maybe she'll leave her TV gigs and start doing this full-time. Seems right up her alley.
