Due to the rise of the social media and front-facing cameras, ‘selfies’ occupied our camera rolls, social profiles as well as everyday vocabulary. Although taking selfies has become a very popular trend and ‘everyone’ can make one, it is not as simple as it seems – it can involve editing, changing background and adding other effects to the image prior to uploading it to the social media platforms. All these features made selfie-taking popular beyond belief and without any signs of slowing down.
Since these quick self portraits have turned into a permanent component of our culture and became an ubiquitous phenomenon, Zesium wanted to contribute to the ongoing culture trend and enable users to make superior and more sophisticated selfies with just a tap away.
Selfie HotSpot is an application that helps people to capture and share their treasured moments as well as the exact spot where they are taken in a simple way. Hence, anyone can discover places or share their own spots, inspire others to take their own photos or just go and explore. Users can create unique photos at different interesting locations and share them with other users since we are all visionaries in our own ways.
Selfie HotSpot is really easy to use – the user should just open an app and take a selfie or a photo of their favourite place. Then, the user can put a description of it along with a hashtag of their location or surrounding and finally, share it and watch the place becoming a hotspot.
The colours for the spots range from green for a less visited place, over the orange for an average visited place all the way through to red, which means that the spot is very popular for taking pictures and contains multiple photos.
