I find myself wondering every now and then about pictures that don't end up on Facebook. Almost every time I attend a social gathering, someone will shout to whoever happens to be taking photos that night: "Keeeeeks, you're gonna put these up on Facebook, riiiiiight?" "Of course, babe," Kirsten will respond.
About fifty percent of the time, the pictures do end up on Facebook for public consumption, typically in an album titled "CLUMSY CUZ I'M FALLIN IN LUV," "last nite" or "omg we're hott."
But it's the other fifty percent I'm more interested in. What happens to pictures that don't make it to Facebook? Do they never get transferred from the digital camera to the laptop due to the laziness/apathy of the taker? Do they just fester in the hard drives of those who took them, banished for life? Who are these people who take pictures and intentionally don't put them up? This all leads me to the most pressing question of all: in this age of Zuckerbergs, pokes and Scrabulouses, if a picture is taken and not put up on Facebook, does it even exist?
