Selfie diplomacy refers to the informal use of social media, and specifically selfies, by diplomats and political leaders to create a positive image, engage with the public, or even soften their image in the eyes of the global audience. This could involve taking and sharing selfies with other leaders, with citizens, or at notable locations or events. These actions could help to humanise political figures and make them appear more accessible and relatable. They could also serve strategic purposes, such as signaling solidarity with a specific leader, cause, or group of people.
