How Online Spaces Have Changed The Way We Eat

We've all seen it happen - you sit down for a meal with friends, the food is served, and then everyone stops to take a photo for social media. There's no denying the power of sharing the experience of food and making it a social experience. How have online spaces - food finding and delivery apps, food blogs and Instagram accounts, etc. - changed the way we eat for better or worse? Are restaurants who are ignoring this trend preserving their dignity or destined to become dinosaurs? How is this trend affecting the divide between the food haves and have-nots, or the hungry and the stuffed? We will be having a spirited discussion with experts in the food space who have reached millions through their apps, social media accounts, and television to see what's in store for our culinary future.
