I browsed Flickr a bit and faved and commented on a few pictures, as you do.
Somehow, there is so much content and it's so random. It's all just noise. If I write a comment on a picture, it will be just noise. How do we still make connections?
This feels similar to small events vs. big events (for those of you who still remember events). It's much easier, at least for me, to connect with people on a small event, with maybe some tens or hundreds of attendants, than a large one with tens of thousands.
Plus large events always have shitty infrastructure and fewer careful details, nice things usually don't scale.
