Fantastic Infographics, Drawn From A Study of Instagram Selfies | Wired
"Right now, there are more than 79 million photos on Instagram that fall under #selfie. This is not counting #selfies (7 million photos), #selfienation (1 million photos), #selfiesfordays (400,000 photos) or the countless number of photos with no hashtag at all. You might be thinking: ‘Finally, we’ve reached peak #selfie!’ But according to a new study, only 3-5 percent of photos on Instagram fall into the category."
The selfie finally gets the study it deserves:
"Instead of zeroing in on a single narrow element, the Selfiecity project is broken down into a few broad areas: main findings, contextual essays and interactive data visualizations."
