Although Foodiggity would never indulge in something as trivial and self-involved as sharing our current meal via social media… The practice is about to be taken to levels of intolerability once unreachable with a mere smartphone and Instagram account.
#Dinnercam, hashtag intentional, is your new social media nightmare. It encourages the restaurant patron to actually pick up their meal from the table, stand, and carry it to a food photo booth. At which time, the person who you’ll soon be unfollowing, can choose from a number of lighting effects, take a pic of their grub, and overshare it at will.
And, because “Having only digital evidence of your current meal is not enough!” said nobody ever, the #Dinnercam will provide an actual print of the photo.
MWEB, who is responsible for this watershed moment in foodiot culture, claims that the #Dinnercam is not meant for mass production, and is only a “tongue-in-cheek campaign” about human interactions in public environments. Let’s never make this happen.
