About 93 million selfies are taken each day and some 880 billion shared online each year.

Now researchers are looking into this 'selfie-craze' and how narcissism relates to a person's selfie-posting behavior on social media sites.

They found narcissists observe other people's selfies as a means of comparative self-enhancement strategy and are more involved with the feedback they receive about their own pictures.

Selfies have been around before social media sites went mainstream, but posting them for 'likes', comments and shares has just evolved over the past few years.

The first selfies hashtag (#selfie) was used in 2011 and just three years ago 'selfie' was named the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year, which may be the reason an emoji followed a few years after.

Taking a picture of yourself and posting it online is a unique form of self-expression, as 'it allows users to extend the 'self' in a very precise manner, as the user's physical characteristics along with personality traits can be manifested in the photo,' researchers from Korea University in South Korea shared in a study published in Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking.

To understand users' behavior when posting pictures of themselves, the team recruited 315 volunteers, ranging from ages 19 to 39, to participate in a week long study.

Online surveys were used that focused on an individual's attitude towards selfies, how involved they are in feedback and to which degree do they observe other people's selfies.

The first portion of the study included a 13-item survey that measured the level of narcissism.

 

It included items such as 'I like to look at myself in the mirror' and 'I insist upon getting respect that is due to me' and participants responded with a seven-point scale –1 for strongly dislike to 7 for strongly agree.

The higher the score, the more narcissistic personality traits the individual possessed.

Next, researchers used another survey focused on the importance of feedback, which included statements like 'Other people's feedback, such as comments and 'likes to the selfies I post on social media is…'.

 

This time participants selected options such as 'important' or 'uninteresting'.

The final stage was assessed with just two items: 'I will make an effort to post selfies' and 'I plan to post selfies on a regular basis'.

 

And again using the seven-point scale, subjects reported their answers.

'Our findings showed that individuals higher in narcissism are more involved in the feedback (e.g., comments and 'likes') they receive on their selfies and are more observant of other people's selfies,' shared researchers.

 

'In addition, the results of the study suggest that the higher the degree to which one observes other people's selfies, the more likely one would leave comments or 'likes' on others' selfies.'

'Finally, individuals higher in narcissism regard the act of posting selfies more positively and are more willing to continue posting selfies in the future.'

The study also suggests that those with a higher degree of narcissism are not apathetic toward other people's content and are more likely to check out the content as a way of comparative self-enhancement strategy.
