The United States' medical billing system is exceptionally complex. Medical bills and Explanation of Benefits (EOB) statements are undecipherable and incomprehensible even for experts to understand. In addition, a 2015 survey conducted by TransUnion Healthcare found that 55% of American patients were either sometimes or always confused about their medical bills and that 61% of patients were either sometimes or always surprised about their out-of-pocket costs.
Photos are becoming prominent means of communication online. Despite photos' pervasive presence in social media and online world, we know little about how people interact and engage with their content. Understanding how photo content might signify engagement, can impact both science and design, influencing production and distribution.

In this paper, we study this behavioral phenomena online.
