See the picture to the left? That would be some of the most creative and strategic minds in public relations worldwide at the recent Public Relations Global Network…taking a selfie.
According to the Pew Research Center, 26% of people – not just Millennials, people – take and post selfies.
I think it is time to face it – you know them, you love them, you take them. Selfies are here to stay.
And it is about time they are respected. Enough with the commercials showing some vapid version of a Millennial with her nose in a phone taking picture after picture. Enough with making a Kardashian joke every time someone uses the term “selfie.”
I guess what I am trying to say is…respect the selfie! And stop making fun of yourself or friends for taking them!
