The children fleeing napalm in Vietnam, an incinerated soldier along a “highway of death” during the gulf war, or the hooded prisoner standing on a box in Abu Ghraib. Barbie Zelizer, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication, says social media has not fundamentally altered the vocabulary of war. “It is a difference of degree, not of kind,” she said. “There are more pictures more frequently from more people, but they still serve the same purpose, which is to give us a glimpse, a window, into conflict.”

A post-internet object is an object that looks good on a webpage, in your Facebook news feed or photo album, on Tumblr or Instagram — somewhere you can access with an internet connection and possibly, a screen, or something that lets you view information as something meant to be visually appealing, says Brian Droitcour.

It’s about something else, something larger than life. I see your true colors shining through. I see your true colors and that’s why I love you. Cindy Lauper is post-internet.
