Chuck, David, Mieke, Peter, et al.,

YES! I think this is a very important topic, and it's one I think about frequently. Not easy to discuss without visual examples.

I'm already on fB and LinkedIn, but have not yet made time to explore the others. Are there downsides to image use on any of these sites (that are unique to any of them? we've already flogged the usual concerns of ever more copies of one's work in a variety of places, copyright issues, etc.) that we should be aware of?

So, please count me in, wherever.
