Supertyphoon “Yolanda” showed the best and the worst of social media. In the immediate aftermath, at least, there was none of the irreverent humor that Filipinos are known for, we who make fun of anything and anyone, even and especially our own misfortune.

By

Jokes and memes on food photography have bloomed on social media, with netizens gibing that people’s food rituals have changed: from praying before meals, they now take photos of their food and post them on Facebook.
