Insta-snap-book: Which Photo-Sharing Network Will Rule Them All?

Photo-sharing networks are on the rise — and while that fact alone may not surprise you, the rate at which these networks are growing will. At the D11 conference in California on Wednesday, legendary Internet analyst Mary Meeker delivered her highly anticipated annual report on where the web is and where it's going. The biggest takeaway? Brace yourselves for a Snapchat takeover.

The Southern California-based start-up has had a meteoric growth, doubling its usership in just the last two months and besting both Instagram and Flickr in terms of number of photos shared per day (over 150 million).

Facebook is still the leading platform, with over 350 million images shared per day on the network. Snapchat comes in second with 150 million, Instagram comes in third, and Flickr trails behind in fourth place.

According to Mary, photo-sharing volume is expected to double in 2013, so we want to know: where are you sharing your snaps? Which is the platform of your choice, and why? Is it social networking behemoth Facebook? Is it the filtered, square-shaped world of Instagram? The self-destructing, short-lived Snapchat? Or is it the newly redesigned Flickr?

Take our poll and tell us what your picture-sharing poison is, then divulge why in the comments! Find out what other Internet trends are expected to take off this year in Mary's full Internet Trends presentation (see the graph showing photo-sharing growth in slide 14).
