I know it's still taboo for a lot of folks, but I thought I'd start a list of facebook profiles for those interested in networking. I decided to drop my $200/year web hosting for images, so facebook is now where I turn for photo sharing and networking with fellow photo nerds. I've been "friended by" and "friended" several folks I recognized from chatting with here, and just thought I'd start a list of profiles for those interested in doing the same.

I'd start some sort of group, but I honestly am too lazy to maintain it :P

Here is mine.

I usually only friend people I've personally met, but what the heck...

I pretty much reserve my personal FB page for my family and actual friends. But I do have a public page if anyone feels like "liking" me. For networking with other photographers and herp lovers, I prefer Flickr.

No worries! To each their own. I know lots of folks that have both a "profile" and a "page" for their art work. Both work!

I use mine mostly as a professional / linkedin-type of tool, but the line for personal and professional is really blurred for me as I do a lot of people photography. People that I've photographed tag themselves in photo albums, friend me, and I haven't met them either. Initially weird, I guess, but it has really allowed me to hone in on my people-photo niche (low light musical performances) and now serves as the foundation for my paid photo gigs. No more advertising required and have gotten my out of weddings altogether :)

Lots of discussion on other nature photography boards about the "right" approach. Should probably make a photo-only page, but just haven't bothered. Whatever floats your boat!

You're not the only one...lol. It also makes it easier when you have friends in different states or countries. Saves on annoying phone conversations and texting, too.
