Technology and social media are giving people who work in remote places or work alone a way of communicating with their peers and others in their industries. According to the Guardian, the real benefit of felfies is to show consumers how their food is produced. A bit of a stretch…?

More than anything else, it’s great PR for farmers, showing that they can have a sense of humour and aren’t all totally old school.
