Don’t Untag That Photo!

Feast News 3/3/14: Sexy Selfies are Prohibited

Electric Feast staff writer, Corrigan Vaughan, just may have started a sensation with Don’t Untag That Photo. We’ve decided to follow up with a campaign dedicated to awful, awkward, and downright unattractive Facebook photos we wish we weren’t tagged in. Why? These photos are just as much you as the selfies you snap on your good side. Imperfection is perfect, and The Electric Feast is ushering in a new breed of flawless. Send your best untaggables our way and include a few words of wisdom on self-confidence. Email Here
