6 Things Foodies Should Stop Posting to Social Media
Sometimes it’s better to just eat it
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and we think some of those words should be “are you sure you should share this?” and “That looks pretty gross.” Here, six things to avoid posting if you’re food-obsessed.
Brag Posts About the Impossible-to-Get-Into Restaurant
So you got an amazing table at NYC’s Sugarfish, even though their reservations line says they’re booked until 2019? We’re definitely jealous, so try not to rub it in too much. (Or just, like, tell us your secret.)
It’s damn delicious. But TBH? It’s actually pretty gross-looking. Unless you get an amazing, drool-inducing snap, save the savory-ness for your taste buds and spare our news feed.
We don’t care how much the tuna tartare is if we can’t even see it.
Anything in Low Lighting
Dark, blurry photos of your 16-ounce filet mignon are just a downright travesty. Here’s a hint: If you must Instagram your meal, use your friend’s flashlight app as a light source. (Whatever you do, don’t use your flash.)
Your Chipped Mani
If you’re going to go the extra mile for that food-in-the-air shot (FITA, for short), your nails better look as classy as that ice-cream cone.
We’re so glad you legitimately love salad. Really. But if you’re going to photograph your plate, make it a melty, cheddar-oozing truffle burger or a flaming, white-peaked baked Alaska. No one wants to see your romaine.
