Describe a person who you follow on social media
You should say
Who he/she is
How you knew him/her
What he/she posts on social media
And explain why you follow him/her on social media
The person I am going to tell you about is Tang Renjie, a famous online food critic. Although he has never systematically introduced his life story, from the pieces of information he reveals in his videos, we can still learn that he received vocational training as a cook after graduating from secondary school and eventually made it to the head chef of the five-star hotel, Sheraton. After quitting his job, he created an account on social media and became a food critic.
He was recommended to me by the platform probably because I had watched so many clips about food. You know, these high-tech companies exploit my data, speculate what I like, and display relevant information on my page to increase the time I spend on their products.
Every day, Tang would post a video in which he goes to a restaurant and comments on the food. His choices range from high-end ones where a single dish can cost nearly 1000 RMB to stalls on the street where you can fill your stomach with only dozens of RMB. This article is from Laokaoya website. Normally, he would take a bite of the food, describe the taste, explain how it is cooked and grade it. The shooting may take over an hour, but the length of the videos is cut to 2-3 minutes to fit the hectic schedule of modern people.
I follow him mainly because of his professional review. There are so many food critics on social media, but most of them have never received formal training. Their descriptions about the food are abstract and bleak, from which I can hardly get what the food is like. But Tang is different. His narrative enables you to imagine what the dish taste like and whether it is delicious or not.
