Facebook users connect with friends by sharing personal information about their lives. Posting photos offers your friends a look inside the moments of your life you choose to share, which can include anything from holidays spent with your family to bringing home a new pet. Commenting on posted photos allows users to connect even more. For some, the idea of friends posting their thoughts might seem unappealing.
