With social media sites like Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, and the like, more and more people who love their daily look (or just love to pose) can now post their selfies online. It’s a huge phenomenon, and naturally, huge phenomena like these give us a lot of valuable data.

TIME Magazine made it their mission to build a database of more than 400,000 Instagram photos tagged “selfie” that also has its geographic coordinates. With this pool of data, they were then able to rank the 459 cities based on how many selfies they generated.

10. George Town, Malaysia

95 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

9. Cebu City, Philippines

99 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

8. Milan, Italy

108 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

7. Manchester, England

114 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

6. Tel Aviv, Israel

139 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

5. Petaling Jaya, Malaysia

141 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

4. Anaheim and Santa Ana, Calif.

147 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

3. Miami, Fla.

155 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

2. Manhattan, N.Y.

202 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

And the top spot goes to…

1. Makati City and Pasig, Philippines

258 selfie-takers per 100,000 people

Keep in mind, however, that this data was generated from pictures posted for public viewing with #selfie. It doesn’t account for selfies posted without the hashtag. In addition, this data was gathered from Instagram only. It’s very likely that the data will be different if we account for different social media sites as well.

So how did your city rank? Tell us all about it below! Meanwhile, you can check the rest of the list (cities ranking #11 to #100) on the TIME website.
