SELFIE QUEEN: The good and bad sides of the selfie

Mel's pros

It's easy to judge whether you're capturing your best side and features in the photograph.

If you have something on your face, in your teeth or coming out of your nose, a quick selfie will let you know straight away.

If you ever go missing, one look at your Facebook page and everyone will have a variety of images to recognise you by.

It's a great way to show off your new outfit or jewellery.

It's a great way to make people jealous when you're doing something really great, like lying on a beach on a Monday.

Your distant relatives will always know what you're up to and whether you've dyed or cut your hair.

Sometimes when you take a selfie, you capture things in the background by accident, like someone stealing a handbag. Solving crime, one selfie at a time.

Mel's cons

If you're lying in bed taking a selfie and you drop your camera or phone, it'll probably hurt quite a bit.

You might not be aware of what's going on around you, like that ball that's headed your way.

People may think you're conceited... but who cares.
