What do you think of when you think of Instagram?
Yep. Selfies. Instagram users love to take pictures of themselves. Indeed, I read a statistic recently that said that of the 16 billion photos that have now been shared on Instagram, 15,999,999,999 are selfies. And the other? Too blurred to make out, but it looked like a duck face.
So, here’s another stat that might surprise you: more selfies are shared on Twitter than on Instagram. And, believe it or not, more selfies are shared on Facebook than every other social network combined.
Opinium surveyed 2,000 adults in the UK and found that 51 percent of respondents have taken a self-image, creating some 35 million photos every month, almost half of which (48 percent) are posted on Facebook. Twitter (9 percent), Instagram (8 percent) and Snapchat (5 percent) aren’t even doing as well as WhatsApp (13 percent) and text messaging (14 percent).
