You've seen them. They are the ones who whip out their smart phones or cameras to snap a photo of their steaming dish the moment a restaurant server sets it before them. Instead of a sauce, they apply a filter to their food photo, and then send it out to the masses via social networking. These #instafoodies/food bloggers are a common sight in every kind of eatery, from fast food joints to four-star restaurants.
Taking a picture of a pie and posting it online so your friends can imagine how awesome your tummy’s gonna feel in 5 minutes (#pieismylife) isn’t nearly as taboo as it once was. #Instafoodies aren’t necessarily cooks the way many food bloggers are, but they are both tech-savvy and enjoy feeding (teasing?) our appetite with food images.
