According to a new study published in Telematics and Informatics, the more selfies someone posts, the more the amount of JEALOUSY in their relationship increases . . . AND the quality of their relationship goes down.

The researchers say it shows that social media can have a negative effect on relationships . . . so it's probably smart to tone it down on your number of selfies.
