The science of the selfie

Today’s total time suck: A study by the City University of New York of selfies. They studied selfies taken in five cities all over the world and came up with all kinds of cool data.
 
From a website called selifecity:
 
  • In Berlin, the average age of selfie-takers was 26.3.
  • Russian selfie-takers are 82 percent female.
  • And my favorite: The average head-tilt for women in selfies in Sao Paolo is 16.9 degrees.
