I find this pretty amusing:

Screen Shot 2014-05-28 at 8.40.36 amDan Zarella is a social media scientistthat is, he looks at social media with a scientific eye.

He recently analysed 160K images  that were tagged with #selfie on Instagram (now that’s a robust sample size) and found some telling results. I’d say that Insta self portraits that weren’t tagged #selfie might actually turn up different statisticsespecially in terms of #like4like type hashtagsbut I guess that it’d be too hard to manually figure out if images are selfies or not. 

It is hilarious that almost THIRTY PERCENT of peeps think no one will notice if they subtly add in a filter.
