I just read an article in the Spanish newspaper Hoy (not a great source for scientific knowledge) and that says (translated by me):
Are you a fan of selfies? Well, a study made by a Dutch researcher, Christyntjes Van Gallagher, from Wageninge University, discovered that excessive selfies are a cry for help from people who feel sexually abandoned (...)
According to the article, the study is called: "Het van fotograferen ontbering en eenzaamheid", but sadly, I haven't been able to find a well respected source (or at least, the study per se).
So, does this study actually exist? or, at least, is it true what it's been claimed?
