Top 10 Selfie-Taking Cities In The World

Isn't it that just last year 'selfie' was announced as international Word of theYear by the Oxford Dictionaries? 
It was also just twelve days ago when the record-breaking selfie by Ellen DeGeneres and A-lister stars including Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Channing Tatum, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, and Bradley Cooper went viral with a total of 32.8 million views on Twitter and was instantly the talk of the town. 
Even my love, James Franco, wrote an article about The Meanings of The Selfie and was published online by the New York Times!
The word selfie means: a photograph that has taken of oneself, typically taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website. (Oxford Dictionary)
To investigate the geography of selfie-taking, they built a database of more than 400,000 Instagram photos tagged 'selfie' that included geographic coordinates. 

The top ten selfie-taking cities are:


1. Makati City and Pasig, Philippines - 258 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

2. Manhattan, New York - 202 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

3. Miami, Florida - 155 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

4. Anaheim and Santa Ana, California - 147 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

5. Petaling Jaya, Malaysia - 141 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

6. Tel Aviv, Israel - 139 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

7. Manchester, England - 114 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

9. Cebu City, Philippines - 99 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

10. George Town, Malaysia - 95 selfie-takers per 100,000 people
