With selfie making its way into the English dictionary in recent times and continuing to show resilience to changes in trends, the selfie doesn’t look anywhere close to being just a fad that many thought it would. A recent study has highlights the obsession Saudi residents have with it.
According to the Saudi Gazette, a report conducted by YouGov in partnership with Huawei has shown that 51 percent of Saudi residents take selfies every day.
The report goes on to say that close to 40 percent of the people surveyed take more than 3 selfies every day.

Neighboring UAE seems to have an even larger liking for selfies as they have around 56 percent of their residents who take selfies every day.
The same study also found out that 48 percent of people in Saudi Arabia would like their camera to capture their face as well as the background to tell the story of their picture.
