'The Selfie Phenomenon' infographic visually displays information on social media selfies, or self-portraits posted on social media sites like Instagram and Facebook. While selfies are extremely popular, there are mixed views on the matter. For many young photo takers, their desire for likes and comments on their pictures can become mixed in with their self-worth.

Social media selfies occur most frequently on Facebook, according to research performed by Opinium on behalf of HTC One. 2,005 adults in the United Kingdom were surveyed. This is worth noting considering how many millennials in North America under that age use social media sites.

The infographic further analyzes topics like photo re-touching, sexy selfies, locations and personal opinion on other people's selfies.
