#FoodPorn or Bust: The Socialization of Food

In a digital world, we all still ‘crave’ connection offline. This desire plays out particularly in our cultural obsession with food—arguably the last inherently social entity we have. As online habits inform more and more real life choices, food serves as one of the biggest influencers of our offline activities.

What we eat now outweighs anything else we may do—after all, if you didn't take a picture of it, did you really eat it? This session will divulge the ways online discovery incites real world behavior with an emphasis on the millennial obsession with food and how it influences their offline habits and experiences.
