I'm not sure. I wouldn't be surprised to see some kind of data protection scandal with Facebook in the near future - our pictures will always be on someone's hard disk, somewhere. Plus, there's always someone lurking about ready to use your embarrasing party photos for these purposes - http://c.cslacker.com/2870l.jpg. Important point missed though: images on Facebook aren't about photography, they're just the most efficient way of getting you social brownie points. Prints would only slow down the validation process. In short, they serve a fleeting purpose, they aren't the purpose so these people will never be kicking themselves about the quality of their photographs. 'Memories' shouldn't be read as 'resolution' either. It's difficult, but sometimes you have to see outside the box as a 'fine art' or professional photographer and learn to differentiate between different intent and ultimate use of images today. Otherwise you'll be constantly pissed off at everyone!
