HELSINKI, Finland, Dec. 25 (UPI) -- Finnish communications company Nokia said its survey indicates nearly half of Swedes are fed up with pictures of food posted on social media.

The company said its survey of more than 3,000 Scandinavians found Swedish respondents were more bothered by food pictures than their neighbors in Norway and Denmark, while respondents in the latter two countries were more annoyed than the Swedes by workout and gym pictures, TheLocal.se reported Wednesday.

Despite the survey indicating Swedes have a distaste for food pictures, prominent politician Filippa Reinfeldt, the country's former first lady, has earned the nickname "Insta-Mama" for her habit of posting food pictures to Instagram on a nearly daily basis.

No details on the survey were provided.
