What about meeting a celebrity and posting a pic with them? You could just make a status saying "Met Bill Murray!" I know what Bill Murray looks like and I know what you look like, you don't need to illustrate your point with a pic.
But people use pictures instead of words that would be equally representative all the time. People respond to imagery. Especially on a Facebook newsfeed.
A picture of a place, or a picture of Bill Murray, is different than a picture of text that you could have just typed yourself if you weren't such a douche.
