Researchers across the country have studied thousands of selfies shared online, on a variety of social networking sites like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook

The project found that women take significantly more selfies than men, but once women hit 40 years-old, the trend reverses. For people 40 years old and up, it's the men who take more selfies.

Researchers say the median age for selfie takers is 23.7.
