When perceiving the world around us as a potential Instagram post, some thoughts, stories and situations can easily be packed into a tweet or a photo, while others are harder to mould into one. Remember when people were excited about how they would retell their story to friends when they meet? Now they have a chance to share it on the go.
To that end, perceiving life in a 'postable' manner can easily become addictive, as goes for the motivation behind the moment of going somewhere or doing something; it engages us to interact with our gadgets—rather than our immediate environment.
(Un)postable is the quality of being (un)suitable for a post on social media.
From the Dictionary of Online Behavior; a project by NNN members TeYosh. Over the next few weeks, we will weekly publish a new word that describes behavior that has emerged on social networks and has changed our way of communication.
