Summer holidays – a time to switch off, relax and have a rest. This doesn't seem to apply to social media though; 77% of people post regularly on holiday, uploading snaps and keeping friends and family updated with their adventures. Long gone are the days when you'd have to pick up your holiday snaps from the chemist and share them with your folks. Now photos are shared as soon as they happen and with a much wider circle of people. However, don't think they all appreciate it – 73% say they get wound up when they see others' holiday pics when they're still at home. Anyway, let's bring a little social sunshine to you wherever you are – here's Sociable Folktales.
