How Instagram works
"We didn't think online engagement would necessarily translate to this instinct, but it does make sense — it's a part of human nature," she added.
What's interesting about the findings is that the amount of faces in the photo, age or gender didn't influence engagement levels. In addition, male users are just as likely to get comments and likes than female Instagram users.
And although it makes sense that those with more followers received more interaction on the platform, those who post too frequently see a dip in engagement. The more you upload, the less likes and comments you get.
"The more Instagram pictures you post, the more people lose interest," Bakhshi said.
The takeaway? Your Instagram followers actually like your selfies. Just don't post one every day.
