    Visit my 52/2011 My photos on Flickr. On Model Mayhem now (fortunately not as a model) My new blogsite!

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself.

    Would be pretty easy, just plot the graph back to start of photography to current using growth rates

    I don't like posting my pics on facebook. I find it an issue of trust. Facebook has too much a history of bending privacy rules. I cannot help wondering what facebook will one day do with those 4% of 70 billion photos!

    well, lets specualate that the worse happens and they now allow say getty or themselves to create a giant stock agency and start selling them ?

    so ? how is that likely to effect me - surely it would be like flickr now, an opt in thing with a % of a sale going back to me

    the alternatives i really cant see happening.

    80% of that 70 billion will be 14 year olds posing in the bathroom with duck lips so big whoop.

    but in all seriousness that is rather huge.

    on a side note, would that be 4% of photos ever uploaded or shared, since it would not be possible to count the ammounts of photos taken and then deleted or never shared online?

    Dare I say, that's 4% of the worlds photography not worth looking at, unless you're interested in drunken gurning.

    I have a lot of my photography photos on facebook, I have a facebook photography page that I use separately from my own profile. I share that out to people at Cosplay events, car events, etc. Just a spot people can freely look and leave feedback or share around! It's worked nicely so far for me.

    On my own profile I have a lot of photos from parties as a central spot for my friends to get them/see them/whatever. So yeah, they'd be part of the 4% you can easily say aren't worth looking at (if you weren't involved in the events).

    But I know of quite a number of talented people who share their photos on portfolio pages on facebook, it's a good way to get yourself out there to people you both do and don't know! Doesn't cost you anything, is all set up ready to go after a few clicks!

    Just like Flickr.
    Just, I'm sure Flickr doesn't destroy the quality of the photos like facebook does LOL!
    I'm yet to delve in to Flickr myself

    Decided to "shave" my signature ;]
    Now mostly shoots with: Canon 5D MK3 & Canon 24-70 f/2.8/50mm f/1.8 (also have a 550D with a variety of lenses/goodies and a Sony Nex-5N)
    PP with: Lightroom only, Photoshop is merely a 9-5 work tool for me.
