Perhaps I have found another social media tool/app that will fit my use more! Snap Dish - an app that users use to upload pictures of their food/recipes! You can post your photos, comment on other users’ photos, cook their recipes and post it as a recipe remake with credit to the author.
Initial thoughts: Seems simple and easy-to-use. Also, this social app has a community guidelines document, which surprises me! But it is sort of a relief that the app makers are emphasizing that comments should pertain to the food and related discussions, and not be of a crude nature. Also, they are quite specific in the types of pictures a user can post. I believe the app is made in Japan, so it could be that they are more concerned with everyone adhering to the app’s original intention, and fostering a non-threatening online community for all ages.
I am going to start checking this out and will comment along the way! :)
Hmm, trying to find a good food social network to use and study for my class this semester. I have yet to sign up for FriendsEat because it requires a FB login, and on double-checking accesses soooo much information from FB. And so I went to go check a more visually pleasing site, Foodie.com, only to have them ask me to sign in via FB or Twitter!!! Argh!!! But I reluctantly obliged. For Foodie.com, it doesn’t check as many of your personal information as FriendsEat does… and when it does, it is a bit less personal information.
I do NOT like networks only allowing you to sign in via an existing social network account.
First thoughts on Foodie.com: You want to steal my information!!!
Also, it kind of reminds me of when I signed up for my Twitter account. Although Twitter suggested friends to invite and people to follow, it didn’t force you too. I am not sure with Foodie.com… I wasn’t really sure what to click on as none of the links in the suggestions page seemed clickable…
