John Morrison Posted January 24, 2020 Share Posted January 24, 2020 Our default activity, when nothing else is going on, is to gaze at a mobile phone: scrolling, tapping, swiping, waiting for something - anything - to happen. We take pictures of our food, our friends, ourselves, and upload them for all the world to see. This should surely be helping to make us more visually literate. Shouldn’t it? Yesterday, I pointed out to the landlord of my local pub that the juxtaposition of pictures on the pub’s Facebook page was, at the very least, unfortunate. A natural desire to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz had somehow got mixed up with the equally natural desire to publicise the pub’s ‘pie night’. In the arbitrary way that Facebook groups pix together, this is how the page looked yesterday. Even after I pointed out the obvious, the landlord couldn’t ‘see it’. Am I being overly sensitive, or ??? 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
