The researchers found that men post an average of three self portraits each week as compared to women who post 1.6 pictures.

The survey disclosed that men capture their bodies into cameras 76% more compared to 45% of women, where around 20% of male shots show their chest, followed by 17% of their torso or six packs.

Men even confessed that they do so to make themselves appear more desirable.

Ben Walsh of HTC said that the selfie trend exploded in 2014 and showed no signs of slowing down, instead of that with all the social sites and dating apps having the best possible photos was an important part.
