Yep, selfies usually aren’t the most flattering choices for your profile photos
Next time you or your selfie-obsessed friend complains of her big nose in those selfies, you finally have something to say that explains this phenomenon. It’s not you (or your friend); it’s the darn smartphone selfies. A quick but highly informative video by Vox explains a number of good-to-know things about this reality brought about by selfies. First, selfies, especially those taken using smartphones, do make our faces look weird. Second, there are figures backing up the reality that say a lot of people think their nose looks big in selfies, and it’s making them all want to get nose jobs. The third and most important of all is most people don’t really know that this facial distortion is caused by the distance between the subject and the camera.
