New Research Says Taking Photos at Events Boosts Enjoyment


Many people mumble and grumble when they go to an event that's basically a sea of smart phones. Everyone from Beyonce to the Rolling Stones have chastised their fans for recording and not being in the moment. Well, they may have been misguided.

According to a new US study taking photos of events actually increases your enjoyment of them. Hey Beyonce, isn't that why we paid to be here? Enjoyment.

Apparently taking photos makes a person feel more engaged in the event. A highly engaging event is supposed to be enjoyable to begin with but taking pictures actually makes a person feel more visually and mentally engaged. If the event is upsetting, taking photos make it worse. :(

You can read more HERE with links to the study.
