Social Media Notes

Here’s this week’s round-up of social media (& sometimes tech) news. Come back weekly for what I hope to be a fun & informative blog post on social stories that caught my eye throughout the week! 

  • A fascinating read (with great pictures) on how Instagram is ruining vacation. “Eating, praying, and loving may be a stated goal of travel. In reality, we seem more obsessed with nabbing the perfect photo.” Remember to take a moment to enjoy your sights, not just take pictures of it.
  • Reminders that there is no such thing as privacy in this social/digital age are important – here’s one: “Your face is big data.” A Russian photography student took photos of people in public then tracked them down on social media using facial recognition software.
