Poll: Are Your Friends Bombarding You With 'Food Porn'?

I apologize to all of my friends…. I am a food-porn-bombardier. 

npr:

Is the “culinary paparazzi” out of control? That’s the message of a parody video by musical comedians The Key of Awesome.

The video may be a touch juvenile, but it gets at a relatively recent phenomenon you’ve probably noticed if you spend any time on Facebook, Twitter or other social media venues: People are sharing a whole lot of photos of what they’re eating. And increasingly, it seems, the friends of these oversharers are getting fed up.

So first of all I’m totally guilty of this (see the post before this on Tumblr), but more importantly…what do you think? -Savy
