The selfie trend seems to be taking Arabnet Beirut by storm.
Following the most retweeted Selfie of all time taken at the 86th Academy Awards on March 2, including A-list Hollywood stars such as Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie and show host Ellen DeGeneres. This selfie hat instantly became an Internet sensation, resulting in more than 3 million retweets, a record for the microblogging website Twitter, and prompting a horde of reproductions online.
The Selfie trend was at its highest at Arabnet Beirut: CEO, attendees and speakers were seen taking selfie. The Selfie-ism was everywhere at Arabnet. Even Alfa Telecom had offered a Samsung S4 for the coolest selfie.
Love ’em or hate ’em, selfies have become a ‘thing’ and now the social media trend has been recognized by none other than the Oxford Dictionaries. Selfie has been crowned word of the year 2013.
Those selfies were taken at Arabnet Beirut 2014, and yes the guy in that pic is your company CEO.
