TIME analyzes data from the social network to find the most self-obsessed cities.

TIME Magazine has built an intricate database of over 400,000 Instagram photos containing the “#selfie” tag and geographic coordinates to determine the most self-interested locations around the world. With over 400 cities included in the project, the selfies were downloaded from Instagram’s API over a ten day period, from January 28 to February 2, 2014 and March 3 to 7, 2014.

Deemed the financial center of the Philippines, Makati City placed first, and was followed closely by NYC in second place.
