Which Canadian city takes the most selfies?

By: Simone Castello
Do you live in Canada's selfiest city? I bet you think it's Toronto. And why wouldn't it be? At least according to the rest of the nation, narcissism goes hand-in-hand with this Hollywood North destination, doesn't it? But guess what? You're wrong! Thanks to a recent data-crunch, over at TIME magazine, we now have access to some of the world's selfie-est cities, and Toronto isn't on that list. (Surprised? It's okay if you are.) TIME magazine researched the hashtag '#selfie' on the leading photo social media site Instagram, over the course of a few weeks. As a result, they were able to build a database of over 400,000 photos from selfie-enthusiasts located all over the world. Selfie_Photo Topping the list is Makati City, also known as the leading financial capital of the Philippines. Located in the capital, Manila, Makati City boasts about 258 selfie takers per 100,000 people. This is quickly followed by Manhattan, New York, featuring 202 selfies per 100,000 people. So, I bet you're wondering which Canadian city made the list? Well, there were a couple. The two Canadian cities that made TIME magazine's list of selfiest cities are Victoria, B.C., ranked #81 on the list, with 34 selfies per 100,000 people, and Edmonton, Alb., ranked #98 on the list, with 30 selfies taken per 100,000 people. For TIME magazine's entire list, cool visual graphics and the methodology and details about the survey, visit: The Selfiest Cities in the World: TIME's Definitive Ranking. Here's General Colin L. Powell's selfie, posted to his Facebook page, and, in in his words, "60 years, before you Facebook folks." We're impressed, General Powell. Such swagger and poise.
