Have some tact. There are some places that should be completely off-limits to selfies. Most are pretty common sense, but as a general rule, ask yourself, “Is something more important than me happening here right now? Is this location known for something more important than I am?” If the answer is “yes” to either question, save your selfie for another time.
* Funerals, weddings, and other major occasions are off limits. If you are at an event meant to focus on or celebrate another human being, put down your smart phone and step out of the lime light.
* Similarly, if you are at a memorial site, keep the phone in your pocket. No selfies at any other memorial or statue, especially if a tragic event took place there once before.
