According to Pixable, the photo chaos continues to grow. There are over six billion photos uploaded to Facebook each month. That number is staggering to me, and I really can’t even wrap my brain around it. Pixable, who has over 800,000 members, decided to celebrate this online phenomenon (or obsession, depending on how you look at it) by creating this infographic which, in a very funny way, illustrates the life-cycle of a Facebook photo.
There really is a fascinating psychology behind Facebook photos. I wrote about that in Women’s Facebook Photos: A Mix Of Psychology & Photography. To be honest with you, I don’t really get it, but I also don’t get the whole concept of poking. I’ll save that for another post.
I have friends who will delete photos on Facebook if nobody comments on them. I never thought a website could mess with people’s self-esteem so much, but it does. Oh well, Facebook is here to stay, at least for a while. I wonder if in a few years we’ll be writing posts like this about Google+. I don’t know, I guess only time will tell. It’s kinda neat to watch it all unfold, isn’t it?
