Posting too many selfies leads to narcissism - the feeling you are better than you are and that you think you are better than everyone else. Researchers said young people who upload many selfies showed a 25 per cent rise in narcissism in four months. Their personality changed. Sending text messages did not do this.

A researcher said there wasn't much research on this topic. The results of his study show that posting selfies can increase narcissism. He said about 20 per cent of people may be at risk of developing narcissism. They want likes from other people after they post a selfie. They want to show others how their life is better.
