I find it fascinating to see the images that people choose to represent themselves. Facebook opens up the world in ways we cannot imagine. A glimpse into the lives we had no idea that even ever existed.
As an artist interested in painting the human face and figure facebook is a gold mine. Sometimes I feel a little creepy as I look for the next link in my around the world chain. Now at #7 they are so far removed from my little world, but still so interesting.
The process for me is to look for the next ‘friend’ that has visible friends who also have visible friends, etc. You wouldn’t believe how many actually use the privacy settings! I have to look far ahead to find the ones that will continue my link. I now have fb profile images for 8, 9 & 10. And I will begin looking for the next handful. Just self-interest, and not creepy!
