The Unfortunate Name of DA

A friend of mine just asked me why I don't just post all my photography on Facebook. 1: Facebook automatically reduces the quality of any posted photograph by something around 90%. 2: Anyone can get on DA or go to my DA gallery and do a word search to find pictures of topics they are interested in.  My photographs aren't just for people I know. 3: Speaking of which, there is the boredom factor.  Only a minority of my friends are interested in Route 66, turtles, abandoned farm houses.  My stream of photographs would quickly become tedious and they would soon tune me out.
