You are atypical. Most people do not have "digital photograph keepers folders". Most people DID have a shoebox or similar collection of disorganized prints. The point is that the typical person's shoebox has been replaced with flickr/instagram/facebook, and the latter has properties that are quite different from a shoebox. On a more general note, why the hell do people tend to respond to statements like 'The general populace X' with 'but I don't X, therefore you are wrong'?
