1. When you go out with friends, what is your favorite drink (alcoholic or non).

2. How often do you go out socially?

3. Have you changed your eating habit in the last year or two?

<<Ditto, although DH is always photographing. But he takes all kinds of pictures, not necessarily pictures of the event, unless it is something unusual, as you say. Nor does he share the pictures on FB.>>

I checked my dslr and I have taken almost 6000 pictures since I received the camera body, I'm itching for an upgrade in camera body but I can't justify the expense.  But I'm thinking about a new lens soon...

That's my understanding too, from having a fresman girl around on vacation this spring break, they are way more into instagram than FB anymore.  I love your pictures!

One of the problems with facebook is the security of the photos, even if you have them locked down, they tend to appear in interesting places.  There are so many other photo storage sites, which is where I keep the majority of my pictures online, that have better security both stalking and storage wise.

I have taken 7000 pictures with my camera (not phone camera) in the last 23 months. Maybe a tenth of them I have posted. I only share the best shots. i figure my friends font really need to ser twenty pictures of Lake Louise; the best thrre or so will do. Sometimes I put up some silly spur-of-the-moment thing I see and snap with my camera phone.

I'm closing in on 6000 in 2.5 years, I can't imagine uploading all of those to facebook!  I upload some, but I share them on other sites that are more secure both stalking and protection.

I follow a cruise site and someone took about 3,000 pictures on ONE cruise Surprised

I can't imagine walking around with a camera taking pictures of everything all day, every day on vacation.

You can't imagine taking pictures on vacation (which is usually out of one's normal area) but you can imagine taking pictures of your normal social occasions and putting them up on facebook, because those are picture worthy.

Interesting.

Yes, we take a ton of pictures on vacation, 3,000, no. I saw MANY of them and it was basically pictures of every.single.thing you could possibly imagine lol.

That's funny, DD prefers instagram too. I don't get it but from what she's said it's like a fb community where people upload pics, comment on them, like them etc.

I think you catch onto individual style by what pics they post too. One friend travels a whole lot and her photos are always just scenery, mountains, ocean shots etc. I find that a little more boring than people pics but that's just me, Lol.
