Why’d you like that celebrity photo on Instagram? Why’d you leave that restaurant review on Yelp? Why’d you text in lowercase, or turn on read receipts, or share your location?

What makes a place Instagram-worthy?
This is a very well made podcast - discussion of the personal experience, the cultural reality, legal dispositions and psychological explanations. Perfect.
wow, life is hard in the US, there are plenty of cross-platform apps to use with all the features you'd want, but noooo "The Apple Ecosystem" is the place to be
ill never even subscribe in the first place, fucking normies :)
Please stop your guests from using 'like' 3 times per sentence... guests that also call themselves writers, it's fairly embarrassing.
I totally can't get it! To buy $1000 phone because of messaging! Some people are crazy) Previously I thought that it's a joke about green and blue bubbles) and after all... there are a lot of messaging-apps which are pretty much better than iMessage.
Like the premise of the show. But please stop saying "like" so much!
Really relatable episode. appreciated all the content in different perspectives. during the episode I deleted Instagram from my phone. I've kept it on my tablet for now. my tablet though I don't use everyday so hopefully this will help me start to ease off of Instagram.
"If you're not visually appealing, I don't know if you can be elitist." first of all, no one should be elitist. Secondly, that's a very shallow opinion. There's much more to people than appearance. Just saying. You both seem very stuck up and rude.
That story shared in the begining! OMG! peak of the emo moment of this podcast.
Let's be real, this is mostly a thing among overprivileged assholes. The rest of the world doesn't care.
What I learned from this is that relationships exist only to have something to post pictures about and to signal to others on social media. Do the two people involved even have to interact with each other, other than to provide subjects for social media posts. This podcast is the hour of my life I most regret losing.
I just discovered this show and I love it! Is there going to be a season 3?
LOVE IT!!! Keep up the awesome work guys. I'm a teen, any interviews coming my way I'd be happy to do! email@example.com
