    And you know this from not using it?

    It's as good or bad and as useful or useless as you want to make it.

    Facebook is where the children play, a virtual sandbox.
    A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.

    Facebook is like wine, use it moderation and it can be a great experience. I have quite a few friends on there that I am not about to get into name dropping who's lives are whimsically intertwined among childhood friends...

    It's easy to just stick a label on something for its well known annoyances, it's another to be cultured and mature enough to embrace its strengths...

    Can you please explain your point?

    Of all things one might say about FB, that one is not likely part of their business plan. Just sayin'.

    Castelli was a kingmaker in the art world. He was savvy and often right on. But a nod from him could kill a career, however valid or 'new-visioned' it might have been. Likewise Stieglitz (I think).

    And it's yet another beyond that to have developed the level of analytical skills and wisdom necessary to see things for what they really are. Not how others with their own agendas want you to see them. What's good for others only occasionally aligns with what's good for you. And when it does, it often does so merely by coincidence or accident.

    The ability to see clearly through hype and obfuscation is one of the hallmarks of maturity.

    Burn the sky in a little - There looks as there is some detail in the clouds that could add to the overall image..

    If you're a serious photographer why do you put your work on Facebook ?
