I've been sent dozens of links to Flickr photos and whatever passes there for galleries/albums. I've never, ever, been sent a link to a Facebook photo or gallery/album.

I don't have a camp, nor do I own FB shares.

But when discussing social media sites, clearly we must look at hard data rather than our personal experience or gut feel.

The hard data says, FB has over 250bn photos, Flickr around 8bn, and FB's photo collection is growing much faster.  Sure Flickr have tried to position themselves more at the quality end - but like I said, in the early days one of the shots I had naively shared in full res, was stolen by WWF Switzerland, so I stopped sharing full res and went down to about 1MB - pure FB territory.
