WDD Selfie App

We need to increase awareness of the blue circle as the global symbol for diabetes as it still means nothing to many people!

For this reason, we have developed a WDD selfie app to promote the blue circle in a fun way.

For those who don’t know, a selfie is a self-portrait photograph (but you can also take a group picture), typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone and shared on social networks. Selfies can be taken anywhere such as at a famous landmark, at a concert, at popular event like a marathon… your imagination is the limit!

How to use the app:

  • Download it for IOS (Apple) or Android (click on IOS or Android or scan the QR code below)
  • Allow WDD to use your picture to make sure it is shared on our WDD pages
  • Take a selfie
  • Move the blue circle around your face or be creative (see examples below)
  • Share it on line with your friends and add a personal message to it

This tool is very easy to use and we hope it will help to further raise diabetes awareness on social media. All selfies submitted will also be featured on the WDD website and social media pages.

Your support is key in making the app a success and so we hope that you will share it with your network of members and supporters. Please promote it on your pages (website, blog, Facebook, Twitter…) and make sure to make your own selfie as well.
