The Daily Photoist: DSCF0723

Each weekday morning, we pick a recent image from the Torontoist Flickr Pool and feature it here on the site. It’s our way to give the many excellent photographers in our pool the attention they deserve!

What’s up with Facebook? It seems like all of a sudden, it’s morphed from being a community dominated by scholarly geeks to being the first word on everyone’s lips. The overnight success of the networking community is humourously exemplified in the above image by Toronto photographer Tom Purves, taken at a recent blogger get-together.
Of course, Facebook is just the latest online community, rising from the groundwork of MySpace and Friendster and Vox and whatever else. With so many virtual communities to manage, some of us have trouble keeping on top of our physical, “real-world” life.
Seriously though, will Facebook stick? How many times are we expected to register and fill out another online profile? Can’t we just agree on one online community and stick with it? How about instead we just go out for some beers or a coffee? See you there.
(Waddya know… even Torontoist is victim to the Facebook clubbery. We have our own group that can be found here.)
