Food and Facebook?

I do something that's rather geeky, and I wonder if any of you do this too.

Whenever I make a new dish, or am making a particularly pretty dish, I take a picture of it. If that isn't vain enough, I then post it to Facebook for my friends to see. I must not have very many foodie friends, because usually only 2-3 will respond.

Anyone else do this on Facebook?

  1. Um, yeah...and photos of restaurant dishes. Doesn't everybody?

      I take photos but don't post them on Facebook - I think I'm the only Canadian without an account! No interest in Facebook whatsoever but a massive interest in food photography. :-D

    2. I love when people post photos of the food they've made. Or ordered.

      1. Yep I do that, too sometimes. Narcissistic? Maybe. It's just for fun. I like seeing what friends are cooking and I like sharing what I cook. I also post about what I ate and cooked in status updates.

        1. Sure I do, when I think of it. Food and cooking are my thing. If I were more organized, I'd do it more regularly than I do now. I'd also update my blog more often.

            Because this is primarily my husband's only use for his fb account, I had to post the Blondie comic strip to my account and tag him in it. ;)

          2. A lot of my friends do that, so I don't think it's a big deal. I LIKE seeing the new restaurants that they are trying and liking so that I can add them to my list.
