I recently came across this Facebook page, yes I still use Facebook, and I really like what they are doing. Some of these peoples stories are depressing and others are happy. It makes me think about what I have, because most of the people in the articles don't have anything to go home to. I just wanted to know if anyone else follows this page and if any of you have any opinion on what they are doing. If there is a page like this already feel free to take it down.

Here's the pages description:
Description
Hey there. My name is Brandon and I began Humans of New York in the summer of 2010, shortly after leaving my job in Finance. (OK, I actually got fired.) I started HONY because I thought it would be really cool to create an exhaustive catalogue of New York City's inhabitants, so I set out to photograph 10,000 New Yorkers and plot their photos on a map. Somewhere along the way, I began to interview my subjects in addition to photographing them. And alongside their portraits, I'd include quotes and short stories from their lives.

Taken together, these portraits and captions became the subject of a vibrant blog. HONY now has over six million followers on social media, and provides a worldwide audience with daily glimpses into the lives of strangers on the streets of New York City.

I love HONY and have been following it for a while. They also have a pretty popular tumblr and it started there if I recall correctly.
