Facebook has the largest collection of photos compared to any other website on the internet. Flickr and Picassa, which are dedicated photo-sharing sites, are far behind in the race with facebook being expected to hit 100 billion photos this summer.
According to a recent analysis, out of the total number of photos on Facebook, around 10% are profile photos.
