The Year of the Selfie Stick

Everyone is aware of the nuisance that is the selfie stick.  The retractable rods are popping up everywhere, and were known as a hot Christmas gift this year.  Unfortunately, some people will not be able to snap any legendary instagram pics with the device anytime soon.

Many major UK music venues such as the O2 have already banned the stick stating “safety considerations.” I see where the concert venues are coming from.  People buy tickets to live concerts for the experience, and to see someone they enjoy perform.  Allowing selfie sticks could possibly block the view of other concertgoers, and create a different experience altogether. They also create a liability problem if used as weapons.
