This infographic from izzigadgets.com picks apart the anatomy of a selfie, such as how to take a selfie and some stats about where these are being shared online.

Taking a selfie seems simple enough but this graphic points out some helpful tips: shoot from straight-on or above for the most flattering angle, smile, use natural light whenever possible and if you’ve got an unwanted photobomber in the background, simply crop them out.

The majority of selfies are taken by youth from the ages of 18-24, but 25% of the selfies taken each day can also be attributed to those over the age of 65. The top three places seflies are shared include Facebook, text messages and WhatsApp, in that order.
