Not many, for I certainly don’t like putting photos on the web (or looking at other people’s photos, for that matter). But I cannot deny that sometimes, when I am away from home, I like to see a picture of Flo, or a picture of Amelie, or a picture of Friederike. And so I click. Sometimes I also try to remember what I myself looked like a while ago. And so I click again. It makes spatial and temporal distances look smaller than they are—doesn’t it?
