NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- 2013: the year of the...selfie? Named word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries, selfies are certainly a social media trend that shows no sign of stopping. Though the subject of many pop culture jokes, selfies are emblematic of the shift in content creation over the past decade. With social channels proliferating, consumers have begun to own brand and product conversations at a level previously unseen. Selfies also provide a lesson for brand marketers and communicators looking to engage their customers in new and effective ways.
