Good Luck.
A study from the U.K. that people who post too many "selfies" (photos of themselves) on Facebook and social networks risk their real-life relationships. Wikipedia says a selfie is "a of self-portrait photograph…typically taken either with a camera held at arm's or in a mirror." The report, from Birmingham University, analysed the of these photos on the relationships of 508 . The study found that excessive photo sharing and sharing types of photos makes almost everyone like you . Head researcher Dr David Houghton said: "People, other than very close friends and relatives, don't seem to relate well to those who share photos of themselves."

Wikipedia explains the rise in of selfies. It says: "In December 2012, Time magazine noted that selfie was its top 10 buzzwords of 2012." Celebrities such as singers Rihanna and Justin Bieber are famous for hundreds of pics of themselves. Many people who post selfies will be , perhaps shocked, by the Birmingham research. Wikipedia explains: "The appeal of selfies comes from…the they give self-photographers over how they themselves. Many selfies are to present a image of the person, especially to friends whom the photographer expects to be . The research may suggest the opposite is true.
