Ah, the selfie. This particular word that has entered mainstream consciousness for what seems to be the longest time now (relatively speaking, of course), is set to scale new heights thanks to Microsoft. Over in a promotional event that was held in Bangladesh, Microsoft as well as Coca-Cola teamed up so that local citizens will be to register and participate in an event that will snag a world record in the process, being the world’s most populated selfie.
This unique event was carried out at the Bashundhara City Shopping Mall, where a registration booth was on hand to check in the participants who had signed up earlier on, before making an accurate headcount in order to substantiate the record for the photo. There were those who took part in this selfie who also picked up prizes along the way, such as the recently introduced Lumia 730 smartphone. Why was the Lumia 730 used to snap the world’s most populated selfie? Well, that is because it came with a 5MP front-facing camera.
The Guinness World Records did mention that there has been no prior record entered concerning having the most number of people in a single selfie photo. Do you think that this record will be broken in the future?
