BANGKOK, THAILAND - OK, we get it, you have a camera. But do you have any friends? Probably not, because a new study suggests selfie-snappers are more likely to be lonely.

Researchers in Thailand assessed the personality traits of 300 college students who were fond of taking pictures of themselves. the study found a vast majority spent more than 50% of the day posting pics and scouring social media, instead of one-on-one interaction with someone else. Experts believed the selfies provided some people with much-needed "attention", something they might have a hard time achieving without a camera. The study is published in the Journal of Psychosocial Research on Cyberspace.

So put that camera down and focus on what's really important, like making friends.
