Unbelievably, the stats for the sharing of food photos on social media have gone large:
- By the end of 2010, more than 80 billion photos were uploaded across a variety of social picture platforms (source).
- At least once a month, 52% of mobile users take photos with their phones and 19% upload their photos to the web at least once a month (source).
I understand this trend even less than I do the massive selfie trend and I have to admit that this sign, outside a Dublin pub, made me chuckle.
The Web Psychologist gives some explanation below but I’d be interested in other thoughts on this sharing phenomenon.
