Although posting your ballot may be illegal, it's unenforceable as a matter of law. There's no way to prove that an image is your ballot.

The poll workers should be enforcing this at the polls, catching the "criminal" in the act, and it should not be enforced anywhere else. I'm not saying they should be prosecuted, but they should at least be stopping them.

Obligatory car analogy: Speeding at 100mph is enforceable, but posting a picture of your speedometer at 100mph should not be enforceable.

Let's look at a successful mega-companies and see what they do: Yahoo. They know to only hire CEO's with Computer Science degrees. To do otherwise might cause disruption and financial losses to their business. They would never hire a CEO without a CS degree and they do a very thorough investigation into whether they might be trying to pretend like they have one. Yes, you need to know how to code.
