The word of the year is Selfie. We have a problem. Two weeks ago I’d have told you that Selfies at Funerals was the best Tumblr to hit the web like… ever. Now that Obama has taken a memorial service selfie it’s a little less funny.
Why do people take selfies? Who is taking them? Can we talk about camera angles and how we can fake a jawline by holding the camera a little higher (these heads of state are clearly amateur)?
The folks from Hashtracking want to talk about holiday hashtags tomorrow on G+. Please join me at 5.30 pacific time on G+ and starting at 6pm on Twitter with the hashtag #hashchat.
Here’s the full announcement.
And my cohosts:
Jessica Northey @jessicanorthey
Pam Moore @PamMktgNut
Aaron Kilby @kilby76
Steve Green @SteveGoGreen
Mostly though I want to talk about Hashtracking’s newest feature. Hashtracks. They’re embeddable images around your hashtag. How else would you demonstrate that 81% of #Selfies come from mobile phones and that #me, #good and #cute are related hashtags?
