Even Russia has issued a warning about taking photos of yourself.

An aide for a Russian minister said in a statement: "Before taking a selfie, everyone should think about the fact that racing after a high number of 'likes' could lead him on a journey to death and his last extreme photo could turn out to be posthumous."
