2015 is the year of the selfie.
Michelle Obama made that loud and clear Wednesday when she announced that the White House is lifting its ban on cameras and social media during public tours. "If you've been on a White House tour, you may have seen this sign," she said in a video. "Well, not anymore," she said, tearing it in two pieces.
However, video cameras—action camcorders, cameras with detachable lenses, tablets, tripods, monopods and camera sticks—are still banned. Flash photography and live-streaming are prohibited.
The announcement came after Michelle, honorary president of the Girl Scouts, hosted an overnight campout on the White House lawn. Fifty Girl Scouts rock-climbed, sang campfire songs and stargazed with NASA astronauts. The event was held as part of FLOTUS' "Let's Move! Outside" initiative, which strives to get children active and exploring the outdoors. At one point, President Barack Obama dropped by the girls' campsite and joked, "What are you guys doing in my yard?"
