Indonesia’s Top 10 Selfie Cities!

Back in 2014, TIME did research on the top Selfie cities in the world. To investigate the geography of selfie-taking, TIME built a database of more than 400,000 Instagram photos tagged “selfie” that included geographic coordinates”. They ranked 459 cities, based on how many selfies were taken per 100,000 people in each city. Here we’ve gathered Indonesia’s top 10 selfiest, most self-obsessed cities!
