A Vacation from Social Media
In an article for recode, Irina Raicu discusses the way social media platforms like Facebook can become a public performance while on vacation.
"If Facebook is a diary, it’s one from which you read out loud in a public park — or at least at a motley gathering of friends, relatives and colleagues," Raicu says. "Traveling with others means enforced physical closeness and a heightened sense of synchronously shared new experiences. It makes one realize what social media does and does not provide."
