Filipino take atlease 2 selfie photo per day.

    Studies shown, that taking a self-portrait or now known as selfie is a self-obsession. But Dr. Pamela Rutledge, Director of the Media Psychology Research Center, pointed out in her column at Psychology Today that “in spite of the wealth of negative headlines, there are several reasons for selfies that have nothing to do with narcissism.”

“Selfies offer the opportunities to show facets of yourself, such as the artsy side, the silly side, or the glamorous side,” Rutledge said.
