Do you share photos on Facebook? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, those pictures of your recent vacation are sitting among some 60 billion other photos currently being stored by Facebook.
60 billion. With a b. That’s compared to Photobucket’s 8 billion, Picasa’s 7 billion and Flickr’s 5 billion.

“Guys prefer photos with girls. Girls prefer photos with girls. Pretty much everyone prefers photos with girls,” explained Pixable CEO Inaki Berenguer at a recent Social Media Week panel.
