Most of girls nowadays would like to take several pictures and pose them on the Moments / Weibo / Twiiter without saying anything.
It's quite common for people to take selfies in America and upload them to instagram or snapchat. Nowadays people can become instagram famous with selfies so people use it as a way to get scouted.
Filters are very popular. They help get rid of different imperfections and they can hide things. They also enhance the photo more. It's like taking photoshop and simplifying so that everyone can use it.
I rarely take selfies so i don’t often use a selfie stick for pictures on myself. I usually use it when i want my pictures to be bigger so i need to set the camera farther away. But when I do use it for a selfie i think it works quite well on making sure I'm completely included cause i have short arms.
It's really useful when you have to travel by yourself. Don't always have someone to take all your pictures for you. And you don't always want to give your phone to a stranger to take them for you as well.
