I'm most interested in what you hope to achieve through this and whether it accomplishes what you hope that it will. Are you looking at it as a photographer's social tool or as a means of gaining exposure for your images? Both? Or is it just for fun?


Everyone I know under a certain age is on Facebook. They communicate VIA Facebook instead of via e-mail, and I am right on the edge of that age range.

I get friend requests daily from people I don't know, who are interested in becoming connected because they saw my photography. So I want a way to connect with them without exposing my personal Facebook information...

So.. that's why. And yeah, it's for exposure, and for fun -- both. :)

I noticed a local Austin friend of mine, David Diaz, became a fan of your page. I assume it's because he saw that I had done so and he checked it out. Remarkable how that works. I'll have to ask him.
I love it when a plan comes together.

It's easy to see trends like that. I add a friend, and then I see others add the same person over the next few days.

Social networking is cool when it happens on such a large scale.
