Science Explains How to Make People Click ‘Like’ On Your Selfie

US astronaut Mike Hopkins’ “space selfie”in 2013/ NASA

If you asked me why people don’t  click “like” on your selfies, I might tell you to take a good, hard look in the mirror.  But, what do I know? 

That’s why we decided to ask science to explain the secrets on a good selfie.  Are you ready for science’s take?

If you want to have a popular selfie… you should wear little to no clothes and have a gun.

Researchers looked at 2.3 million images on Flickr in order to determine whether it was possible to predict whether or not a photo would be popular.

RESULTS:

Images that included a miniskirt, maillot, bikini, cup, brassiere, perfume or revolver were more popular.

BuzzFeed‘s Siraj Datoo has more on the science of the selfie.
