British adults like taking photos of fit strangers

2 August 2013

thom yorke Some poll has found that 8% of British adults have admitted taking photos of attractive strangers on public transport or wherever, like it's a normal thing to do.

Based on a Nokia survey of 2,076 people, researchers also reckon that nearly 5 million are worried about dirty photos of themselves may end up on Facebook. These people have obviously been reading IsAnyoneUp?

These researchers have also worked out that an estimated 7 million people have admitted taking intimate photos of themselves and putting them online.

And, around 90% of people who experience break-ups will also erase photos of their former partners from their phones, because it helps to "achieve closure". Presumably, these people then take a load of nudey photos in a bid to woo a rebound shag.

The worst scum that the research found were the 40% of adults who take photos on their mobiles to show off on social media when they've been on their holidays or bought posh food or whatever.

Nokia's Thomas Messett said: "Our research has given us a real insight into the ever-changing quirky habits of the British public. It would appear that wiping your mobile phone pictures is a typical part of the digital break-up, and gone are the days when people would burn photos of their exes."
