      Do you snap selfies? If so, you're not alone.

      Fifty-three percent of Canadians have taken a selfie, according to surveys conducted by Vision Critical for Virgin Mobile Canada.

      Why do selfie-shooting Canadians do what they do?

      • Capturing memorable moments (44 percent);
      • No one else to take the photo (33 percent);
      • Sharing good photos of themselves (31 percent).

      The survey results also show that men and women who are familiar with the phenomenon are just as likely to take selfies. However, men are less likely to share those selfies with others.
