In the UK, more than 300 million images are shared online each month.

Most Brits (53%) share their photos on Facebook, while 11% upload them to Twitter, 7% to Instagram and 6% to Flickr.

Facebook was used by 70% of 18-24-year-olds.

‘The rise of shooting and sharing in the UK is showing no signs of slowing down,’ said a spokesman for Samsung which conducted the poll of 3,000 people, 500 of whom live in the UK.

Though one in 10 UK respondents said they shoot and share online in less than 60 seconds, this compares to one in four in Spain and one in five in Italy.
