People often take selfies to capture moments from their lives, but many of us aren’t the best selfie takers, a new study suggests.
People take selfies as a means of expressing our inner self, or the “self”, according to a new survey by the company Self-Portrait, which asked over 1,000 people in different parts of the world to describe their feelings about taking selfies.
A full 70 per cent of people said they take selfies for self-expression, with many taking a picture of themselves with friends or family.
The survey found people who took selfies were less happy with their lives than those who did not.
Many of us take selfies because we want to show our inner selves, or our innermost thoughts, said Self-portrait’s director of marketing, Daniel Siegel.
“People want to be in control of their own life and not have to worry about the things that they can’t control,” he said.
The most common reason people took selfies was to capture their inner self and show their inner selves to friends and family.

Only a minority of respondents (8 per cent) said they had taken selfies to express themselves.
“I think the selfie is one of the most common forms of communication and expression,” Siegel said.
“But there are also other uses for selfies, like being funny or expressing one’s emotions.”
People often took selfies to create a social connection, which can then be shared with friends and loved ones.

More than half of respondents didn’t take a selfie for more than a week, and about one in five people said their only selfie was to get attention or get compliments.
Self-photographers often use social media to keep up with their clients.

Rather, people are looking for some way to share something that they are proud of.
For some people, the selfie was their way of expressing their innerself and being self-aware, Siegel added.
“They feel more connected to themselves and less tied down by their social media feeds and work,” he told Mashable.
“It can be quite freeing.”
Self-deprecating selfies are also a common activity.

“We’re seeing this shift in self-portraits,” Sasser said.
Self portrait is a social media platform that allows people to capture images of themselves in their home and on a beach.
While some people take a lot of pictures in front in front, some use self-Portraits to communicate and express their self.
People tend to use self portraits to share their inner feelings, whether they are positive or negative.
“Self portrait is about expressing yourself and sharing something you’re proud of,” Seltzer said.
You can also find self portrait on Instagram, Snapchat, Snapchat Stories and other social media platforms.
Self Portrait uses a platform called Self-Repair.
“There is an abundance of information available for those who are looking to connect with friends, family, colleagues and loved one through photos of themselves,” Sels said.
It’s important to note that self portraits are often made from a digital camera or smartphone, so they can be viewed on any device, even a phone.
However, selfies can be seen as a form of communication when used properly.
Self portraits are also an effective way of connecting with your social circle and sharing a story with a wider audience, Seltz said.
In many cases, selfies are a form on social media where you can share your thoughts, feelings and memories with people who share your emotions, Sels added.
SelfPortrait will continue to expand its platform in 2018 to include self portraits from other types of social media, including Facebook, Instagram, Vine and Snapchat Stories.
“The more self portraits we add, the more we will be able to use these photos to share and support our clients in their journey to becoming happier and more connected,” Selter said.
