Man on the Edge: Time to Ban "Foodstagramming"?
"Don't eat it, Tweet it!" That seems to be the motto these days of every other user on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook, and every social media site under the sun. "Food porn" has become one of the most popular, and most despised, ways of being "social" on the web. At least for now.
Filling feeds full of food has some folks fired up, and ready to put the kaibosh on your quick pics of canopes. Actually, some restaurants in New York City have already banned "foodstagramming" in their dining rooms, because it can be so disruptive to other customers. Apparently, annoying everyone on your Twitter feed is just a bonus.
But adamant foodie photogs aruge that once the food has been delivered to the table, it's theirs to use as they please. Eat it, photograph it, rub it in their hair, whatever strikes their fancy. And surely there's somebody out there just dying to see a vintage-filtered image of every piece of food you've ever ordered, right? Maybe.
What do you think? Is "foodstagramming" an exciting new social media trend, or does it just give you an unfortunate craving for burritos? Is it time to ban "food porn" from social sites?
