Hi there. In today's example of how social media directly affects society, a city in Australia has decided to drop major cash on a public toilet specifically for Instagrammers.

The culprit is this cute little boat shed just off the Swan River in Perth. View this photo on Instagram instagram.com The Crawley Edge Boat Shed sits at the edge of a long dock surrounded by glassy blue water, making it a prime spot to get the perfect 'gram.

And since all the people traveling to the shed to take pics are human, they also happen to have bladders. As a result, the Perth City Council has opted to create a stand-alone, solar-powered toilet to accommodate the new tourist boom, for the modest price of $401,280 AUD!!!!
