Photography in the Age of Facebook
AbstractPhotography has become ubiquitous as people increasingly take photographs with camera-phones and upload them to photo-sharing sites like Facebook.

However, we can turn to past critics like Susan Sontag and Roland Barthes to provide a basis for understanding the modern influence of photographs.
