If you are involved at all with any social networking sites, it's probably a safe bet to assume that you have at least a few pictures of yourself up and maybe those of some close friends as well. Even if you are a novice participant in those arenas, you probably have a blog or at least a cool image that you have set as an avatar that you share with others on your IM program of choice.
As more and more people open up large segments of their lives to the ever-expanding online global community, the popularity of websites dedicated solely to photo sharing continues to grow. Sites like Photobucket have been used for years as huge image repositories for blogs and websites.
