Visitors to Instagram and Pinterest are fortunate to find (accurate) identification of images. (Other online sources are even worse.) Posters seem more interested in "likes" than in providing useful information. Or have I mistaken the matter . . .?

The signal-to-noise ratio is heavily lopsided, no doubt about it.

I intend to explore Instagram, as I am a newbie there. Pinterest is perhaps most disappointing; the great majority of images are not found to be expandable---and the labelling is frequently erroneous, when present at all. Some posters link to more useful sites . . .

A designer friend uses Instagram. Are there other such sites that one can recommend ? Facebook I would eschew (gesundheit) for its company behavior and ethics---if I were able to sign on, which (after changing my email address) I cannot.

Anyway, the roofing project at Tonkens is news. Are there other photos of the work site ?

I'm also a social media agnostic, and don't belong to any of them (I've likely lost out on connections as a result, but still). But I've also been tempted to join instagram, but since it's owned facebook, I just assume that it's corporate ethos, if not equal to its parent company's, can only trend in that direction over time.

Ah---I didn't know that. Current New Yorker has a long piece on Bezos and Amazon. Pretty grim picture.
