In defense of sharing photos of your food on social media

In defense of sharing photos of your food on social media | Geek Topics | Scoop.it

"One of the biggest problems in America is obesity, too tightly belted to thoughtless consumption of food we are not proud of. So what’s wrong with showing off beautiful food? Isn’t this a mindful approach that checks in with those who love us – in other words the opposite of unconscious overeating? Sharing photos of our food is gourmet; hiding what we eat is gourmand."

Saverio M Rinaldi's insight:

I agree that we should celebrate food. We need to share and like to boost each others food choices. Who would be proud to post a burger and fries from a fast food joint?

5 lessons we learned experimenting SlideShare as a visual blog

5 lessons we learned experimenting SlideShare as a visual blog | Geek Topics | Scoop.it
SlideShare is a great platform for visual content and an amazing company: in just a few years, it has become the YouTube of presentations, one of the Top 150 sites in the world with an impressive 3 Billion views per month from 60 million unique visitors. Perhaps like many others, I originally thought of SlideShare as a platform to use only on specific occasions: when I had talked at a conference, when we had produced great slides worth sharing or when we had something specifically visual to communicate. I had had great experience and results but I don’t talk to conferences every day and so I sometimes felt I was missing out. And then, one night of September last year, I heard Jason Miller present at one of our #leancontent events and it became all clear: the team and I realized we could use SlideShare in a very different way - not just as a tool to recycle and share what you already created for other purposes but as a media channel that we would update on a regular basis. In a word, as a visual blog.

We decided to try it: over the next few months, we tried to publish at least every other week to SlideShare, integrating it in our content calendar alongside our blog and our Scoop.it content curations.

These are the first results after 4 months running this experiment. Continue reading →
