Media: Snappetite

Phil Oh, founder of the global streetstyle website Streetpeeper recently launched Snappetite, a site that lets users share pictures of their meals with their friends and the digital world.

Snappetite takes cues from the growing food journal phenomenon raging on sites like Flickr, Facebook and Twitter. One of Flickr’s most active groups is “I Ate This” which has over 300,000 members, while the site has over six million pictures tagged “food”, a tenfold increase in two years. With an attention to interconnectivity, Snappetite aims to be more than just a place for food documentation. Users can comment, catalog and rate photos of the food they eat to share with their friends or the world.

Ultimately, like online style blogs, users of Snappetite reveal themselves through the food they eat.
