  • 4. Facebook Identity
    • Who are our friends?
    • What do we learn from “Info”, the status posts, and the profile picture?
  • 5. Expectations
    • Place
    • Artifacts
    • Emotion
    • Attitude
    • Context
  • 6. The Studium and the Punctum
    • Roland Barthes/Camera Lucida (1980)
  • 7. The Air
    • Winter Garden Photograph
    • The “air” of the subject
  • 8. Annie Leibovitz
  • 9. Why the rules are different
    • Mobile/Ubiquitous Devices
    • The search for the real or a lack of training
    • The need for immediacy and disposability
  • 10. Barthes wish comes true
    • “ I am not a photographer, not even an amateur photographer: too impatient for that: I must see right away what I have produced”
  • 11. The Webcam
  • 12. I’ve Got Real Friends…
  • 13. …And Places to Go
  • 14. Hiding in Plain Sight
  • 15. The Past is Present
  • 16. Manipulation
  • 17. Movies as Motivator
  • 18. Facebook as Art Gallery
  • 19. Why do all of these styles exist?
    • Enlivens the sterility of Facebook.
    • Focuses on the “moment.”
    • Visual equivalent to the status line.
    • Allows the novice photographer to exhibit work.
    • Design rules are redefined.
  • 20. Walter Benjamin
    • “ Camera introduces us to unconscious optics.”
    • No original art/photograph. Digital online images are only reproduced infinitely.
  • 21. Interpersonal-to-Mass Communication
    • Always communicating/Facebook is always “on.”
    • Social networks/users demand content.
    • The image and status line fill the “News Feed.”
    • Significance of meaning? All about the punctum.
  • 22. The Effect of the Profile Picture
    • Artistic endeavors and exhibition are within grasp of all users.
    • Photographic manipulation may cause personal traits (age, race, sex) to be less important.
    • Equality among Facebook users achieved through the diversity of images.
    • Connectedness (real or imagined) magnified through recognition of the “air”.
  • 23. Questions? Comments?
