Food and Socialmedia

            Hi guy It has been awhile since my last update on my blog about all appreciate food from all around the world. I wish that I could taste them all but it is impossible LOL. I have many friends who like to share food on social media. Take photo and share before they eat which we call “Eat and tweet”

             The phenomenon known as the “eat and tweet” has flooded social

             media(Facebook,Snapcat,Twitter,Instagram)feeds with mouthwatering food photos. Why is everyone suddenly so keen to snap their snacks? The popularity of social media networks like Facebook and Twitter continues to skyrocket, and so does the concept that everything we do – everyone we meet, every party we attend, every movie we see – needs to be uploaded and shared with our Internet friends. Mobile technology has made it incredibly easy to document every moment of our lives, and the looming invasion of wearable technology will only make it easier.Increasingly, this sharing occurs by way of photos. In 2013, on average 1.6 million public photos were uploaded to Flickr every day. Uploading photos is the most popular activity on both Facebook and Google+, while Instagram – a social media platform wholly dedicated to image sharing – grew by 23% in 2013.


                    And, more and more, what we’re sharing is also what we’re eating. A 2013 survey found that 54 per cent of 18-24 years olds have taken a photo of their food while eating out, while 39 per cent have gone on to post it online. 90 new photos hashtagged #foodporn are uploaded to Instagram every minute. The idea of sharing food photos online has begun to dominate the world of participatory technology: apps like Burpple, FoodSpotting and SnapDish are specifically dedicated to the logging and sharing of food.


Food blogs, food forums and food groups in online social networks are numerous. Some mostly function as means to share recipes while others for reviewing restaurants or dining experiences. Depending on the subject matter they vary according to both how food and eating is presented and portrayed. While blogs dedicated to exercise view food as fuel and vitamin packages, people following recipe blogs tend to emphasize the pleasure and indulgence associated with eating. Which food community one belongs to can therefore be seen as a strong marker for one’s identity.


Food porn is one such powerful metaphor. Food porn is typically used on platforms such as Facebook or Instagram, captioning delicious and visually appealing food items soon-to-be-ingested. The term “food porn” goes back to 1979, when Michael Jacobson, co-creator of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, wanted to contrast healthy and unhealthy foods —“Right Stuff” and “Food Porn” — in the organization’s newsletter. Jacobson later clarified that he “coined the term to connote a food that was so sensationally out of bounds of what a food should be that it deserved to be considered pornographic.

Recently we saw famous viral right now which we call “Salt bae”. It is video of the most sexiest chef in the world right and there are many of his parody.

Turkish chef Nusret Gökce knows a thing or two about his

meats. The restaurant owner already has quite the social media following because people just can’t get over the dramatic and often sensual way in which he beats, treats, and eats his meats. He recently broke the internet after posting a video demonstrating his apt knife skills . . . and the theatrical finesse with which he adds seasoning to his steak. And thus, #SaltBae, the internet’s new favorite sex icon, was born.


Here is some story, I saw recently and interesting in it. Let’s see what I will serve you next week!!!
