Well, either way, we’re here to tell you that taking selfies could actually be beneficial to you!

According to a study made by the journal of Social Psychological and Personality Science, selfies allow us to better capture a moment, giving moments in our life a true “meaning” rather than just being physical memories.

It isn’t a secret that photographs have been around for a while. Capturing pictures has always helped us to remember our friends, family and significant events.

Though all this true, the digital age has changed things slightly. Millions of photos are ‘posted’ every day to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, you name it! There isn’t one picture you wouldn’t find on the Internet. 

With so many pictures seen, this has us wondering...do selfies hold as much meaning if they are seen in abundance? Research reveals that it’s all a question of perspective.
