In fact there already was a world record and it was detained by Microsoft and Coca-cola (1,151 people int the pic). But this young French man (he is only 16) managed to put his name with brio in the Guiness book: his selfie counted 2,530 people in the background!
On 26th May, 2015 in Nice, France, the World’s Largest Selfie was captured by Tom Bittmann with 2530 people and his Wall of Selfie (WoS*) application for iPhone & Android.

To succeed in his record attempt, Tom Bittman was helped by a local electro music festival. The organisers allowed him to climb on stage to take his selfie with the crowd. On the technical side, Tom used a fish-eye and a 3.5m long selfie stick to put his iPhone at the necessary distance to grab everyone in the frame.
Tom Bittman is not unknown in the world of selfie as he recently launched WoS: Wall of Selfies, an app that allows people to categorised selfies throughout the world. His app is already a success in the US, India and Brazil and Tom does not hide that his Guiness record was a stunt to try and attract more investors.
Still, congratulations Tom. Until someone else takes a selfie with 2,531 people of course.
