Posting photos of your vacation on social media

Ever heard the phrase “Pics or it Didn’t Happen”?

How many photos does the average holiday maker take?

Research, carried out by easyJet on 2,000 travellers in 2019, discovered that people take around 2,500 photos during a week’s holiday.

It’s good to capture your memories on camera, but don’t spend all your time posting them on social media.

A study in 2017 revealed that nearly half of the 2,000 study participants admitted missing out on “vital holiday experiences because of time spent on social media” and 44% of them felt that “social media ruined their holiday experience.” It also found that the average holiday maker spent nine hours browsing social media during their week long trip.

Yes, the report blamed social media for making the holiday makers forget about enjoying the world around them. Not that this was a new phenomena. I’m sure we’ve all witnessed people watching the world through their video camera long before social media was a thing.

And what of all the cine cameras from the 50’s and 60’s? At least then the memories were only shared AFTER the holiday.
