A screenshot from the TIME Magazine report mapping the world's cities with most selfie-takers. The Philippines lands in first and ninth spot.


MANILA, Philippines — TIME Magazine built a database of over 400,000 Instagram "selfies" and found that Makati City and neighboring Pasig City are the world's selfie capital.

"Makati City, known as the financial center of the Philippines, can now boast another distinction: It is the Selfie Capital of the World," TIME editor Chris Wilson from Washington wrote in a report posted Tuesday.

"The city, part of metropolitan Manila and home to 500,000 people, produces more selfies per capita than any other city in the world," Wilson added.

The area boasts 258 self-takers per 100,000 people, making it number 1 among the 459 cities that the international magazine evaluated.

The two metropolitan cities, however, are not the only places in the country that landed a spot in the 1011p 10. Cebu City also ranked ninth in the list for having an average of 99 selfie-takers for every 100,000 people.

Second in the chart with 202 selfie-takers per 100,000 people is Manhattan in New York, while Miami, Florida comes third with 155.

The top ten selfie-taking cities are:

Makati City and Pasig, Philippines - 258 selfie-takers per 100,000 people
Manhattan, New York - 202 selfie-takers per 100,000 people
Miami, Florida - 155 selfie-takers per 100,000 people
Anaheim and Santa Ana, California - 147 selfie-takers per 100,000 people
Petaling Jaya, Malaysia - 141 selfie-takers per 100,000 people
Tel Aviv, Israel - 139 selfie-takers per 100,000 people
Manchester, England - 114 selfie-takers per 100,000 people
Milan, Italy - 108 selfie-takers per 100,000 people
Cebu City, Philippines - 99 selfie-takers per 100,000 people
George Town, Malaysia - 95 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

The study was conducted in two sets: January 28 to February 2, 2014 and March 3 to 7, 2014. Results tagged as "selfie" yielded a total of 402,197 Instagram photos within a 24-hour period.

A possible inaccuracy, however, can be noted as not all the photographs can be traced to a location.

TIME also said that the results also reflect "more than just a penchant for selfies" as it ultimately points to smart phone adoption rates and median income among the world's cities.

"As such, this list tends to favor regions just outside major urban areas," Wilson said.
