Thanks to digital cameras in cellular phones, Turkish youth is very proactive in capturing their social lives and sharing it on the web through social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Deviantart. Turkish youth considers it almost a necessity to record every moment of their lives and even though Turkish society could be considered more conservative than certain western European societies, Turkish youth is much more enthusiastic to display their photographs to the general public via social media than the European youth. Due to numerous amateur clubs and private courses in various associations or public courses offered by municipalities, photography is highly accessible as a hobby and is favored among the youth. However, it is still extremely expensive for the youth to own semi-professional or professional cameras and other photography technologies
