TAKING PHOTOS AFFECTS MEMORY!!!!

Take a picture, it’ll last longer! Not exactly. Ironically, research found taking photos of things makes us more likely to forget them! Experts call it the “photo-taking impairment effect” – when we rely on our technological devices to capture memories for us, it negatively affects how our own brains remember them. Something to keep in mind the next time you’re on vacation/at a concert/out on the town with friends. None of your Instagram followers really care about your selfies anyway.
