In Praise of Dadfluencers All those fathers out there posting about on social media are changing the face of fatherhood. wired.com/story/praise-of-dadf /DigitalCulture 'sDay

@wired From the article: "This kind of celebration of everyday fatherhood on social media and out in the real world is distinct from the long and insidious tradition of 'family as performance,' which uses family as props in a social charade."

So according to the author, family life is a charade, but by posting on social media "You make your kids and your partner's lives better with every funny tweet about your toddler, every school pickup, every wiped nose."

Anybody else see the irony?
