Swedish Gym Chain Bans "Selfies" In Locker Room
Via The Local: A major Swedish gym chain has slapped a ban on "selfies" in the changing rooms claiming the prohibition is to protect the modesty of half-naked fitness fanatics. The Friskis & Svettis chain, which has branches all across Sweden, is imposing the ban in their Stockholm gyms. A selfie, a so-called self portrait photograph usually taken with a camera phone, entered the Swedish lexicon in 2013 and is now a social media phenomenon.
