Even more alarming is the idea that selfies aren’t simply a record of our lives and behaviour – they’re changing them.Launched by the media theorist Lev Manovich and digital analyst Daniel Goddemeyer, analyses Instagram selfie patterns around the world.Unfortunately you are using an old browser that is unsupported by our new platform.

In the age of social media and selfies, it’s become natural meticulously to police images of ourselves. We’re all familiar with the ways in which digital innovations have changed how we work, date, socialise and shop, but I hadn’t reckoned on my i Phone changing how I smile, how I perceive myself, and how precious I am about how others perceive me.As I try to explain why I’m reacting like a celebrity who has just spotted a paparazzo up a tree, how this photo amounts to career suicide, even defamation, I realise that his is, of course, the saner voice. I’ve never thought of myself as high-maintenance – I go make-up-free on holidays, can get ready for a night out in under 15 minutes and never expect to look better than passable – yet I know my good angles, I’ve perfected a selfie-smile and I have preferred Instagram filters. You may dismiss me as a member of a vacuous generation, and, yes, this digital vanity might be most extreme among the under-forties, but no generation is immune.Street-style blogs reveal that everyone’s in on the “ankle cross” and “pigeon toe”, which make your legs look leaner, and few can pose for the camera without a “knee pop” bend in one leg.Another trick is sucking on a straw, or “sparrow face”.
The backlash app, perhaps, is Snapchat, a picture-sharing service where photos disappear 10 seconds after they’ve been opened, liberating us from preciousness.From it, we learn that the average age of the selfie-taker is 23.7; of people under 40, women take more selfies than men; over 40, men become the main culprits (perhaps because their female peers are anxious about ageing).Manovich and Goddemeyer also analysed “extreme poses” such as the “head tilt”, finding that the female tilt is 50 per cent deeper than the male (12.3 degrees versus 8.2 degrees).I know my good angles: I’ve learnt never to lean into a picture (it makes you look crazy), and I’m on my way to adopting a celebrity “mono-face”, like Victoria Beckham’s pout or Jennifer Aniston’s semi-smile.I’ve lost any reticence about asking people to take my photograph.
