Food on social media can be polarizing, especially if the quality of photography is lacking. Currently in beta, startup FoodChain is a food-driven social platform that encourages people to virtually share their meals -- for better or worse.

The interactive mobile app hosts meal reviews, enabling users to share with friends while also getting feedback. This could be particularly useful for aspiring or amateur chefs, or even food photographers. The short reviews are less than 200 characters and must include a picture. There is also a competitive element to the food on social media: positive meal experiences go to the 'Wall of Fame,' where as negative ones could be sent to the 'Wall of Shame.'
