“The number of online photos has steadily increased over the last decade, but a revolution has occurred with photo sharing in the last year. Pixable Photofeed alone sorted through 10 billion photos in the first month after the launch of the app. This is only a glimpse into the massive volume of photos circulating in social networks.” – Pixable.com
