Twitter Is Hunting Monetization Wabbits, blocks API on Instagram

Twitter Is Hunting Monetization Wabbits, blocks API on Instagram | Social Media Photography | Scoop.it

Twitter is on the hunt to monetize when you think about the recent changes its causing across the social media landscape. LinkedIn changed to no longer allow tweets flowing inbound. You can still create a message and send it out to Twitter. Now, Twitter apparently blocked API access on Instagram to search for Twitter friends. Wow. Almost anything can flow into Twitter but sharing that data outside of Twitter is becoming a Spiderman act of climbing walls.

 

Its great that Twitter wants to position itself for better monetization with potential businesses. Mobile apps are on the rise and social analytics tools are improving. The question is: will the move to pull back on data sharing and buying out companies that hinge on better features than the Twitter site itself essentially burn relationships? -Nakeva

Is Social Media Destroying the Art of Photography? | Social Media Today

Is Social Media Destroying the Art of Photography? | Social Media Today | Social Media Photography | Scoop.it
Photographs and social media have taken on a life of their own – people feel the need to document everything in film. What impact is social media having on the art of photography?
Nakeva Corothers's insight:

Social Media photography practices are rattling several verticals under the imaging industry. The fact remains the cliche will hold true, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" when it comes to what people will pay for to keep memories, decorate their home/office or accept as photojournalistic creativity. Social Media is jsut a vehicle of presentation with emotionnal connection.

Rewindy Brings Visual Storytelling vs Photo Sharing

Rewindy Brings Visual Storytelling vs Photo Sharing | Social Media Photography | Scoop.it

Nakeva Corothers: The landing page shows images are large on a page and text can be added. Blogs, Flickr, Facebook or Google+ already allow options for visual storytelling. Its up to the user to add actual story when uploading an image. I'm curious how Rewindy is different. Its a matter of how long it takes to get access to the "private beta" before I can offer more valuable insight.

 

 

Giuseppe Mauriello: Rewindy is the first visual story-sharing service. Create, personalize and share life events like travel, family or hobby events. You can share the story privately to a few friends using email or more publicly using Facebook or Twitter.

 

From Rewindy Blog:

"The photo doesn’t often capture the thoughts or feelings of the people in the event. This is why people love stories. A story is a narrative you can relate to and it highlights thoughts, emotions, relationships and can freely go into history or speculate about the future.

Things that are at extremely difficult with photos. A photo on the other hand creates a very detailed picture of a person, scene or object in the viewers mind.

 

The combination of these two the photos and the story is a visual story. Bringing together the context and narrative what happened behind the photos, with the best visual images. A visual story is a much more personal and expressive way to share your photos, or a visually beautiful way to share your story..."

 

 

Rewindy is in private beta now. Request an invitation here:

Is Social Sharing Social Big Brother?

Is Social Sharing Social Big Brother? | Social Media Photography | Scoop.it
George Orwell’s arguably most famous novel, the dystopian Nineteen Eighty-Four, coined a number of phrases that are in widespread use today. One of them was “Big Brother,” an authority figure who watches every move you make, everywhere.

-----

 

Pingdom makes an interesting point and reference to a dystopian society. We share large amounts of data about our lives these days compared to 10 or 20 years ago. Smart devices make this easy to put in our daily workflow. Is it too much data? How are these apps using the open API? Do you manage your location data in images?

 

The question is: are we being forced into an open sharing society or is it by choice? Recall Facebook's move to make the default setting to share everything with everyone and now you have complex settings to change just to lock down your account?

 

Let me know your thoughts. - @Nakeva

Mix your social photos to create your Facebook Cover photo. Neat idea. Instagram already posts your photos to its own Facebook album, so, this should be a seamless tool to use.

MakeUseOf Describes 5 Cliché Pictures People Take For Their Social Media Accounts

MakeUseOf Describes 5 Cliché Pictures People Take For Their Social Media Accounts | Social Media Photography | Scoop.it
There are a lot of different profile pictures that exist on social networking platforms, but sometimes they can get a little corny or too repetitive.

 

My Thoughts:

Mobile Photography is one thing, social media photography is only part of it. People can't help themselves by taking photos with their phone or point and shoot and popping it on Facebook as the profile shot. Out with friends, of course you are going to take photos and share on Facebook. At an event, surely you will take shots of the food, people and scenes to share on Twitter. This is all fun and great but put some thought into your shots and don't overedit unless it fits the story you are telling with the image.

 

My advice: get a photographer to take your head shot for social media profiles. Friends, family and associates will accept most anything you use to share your personality. However, these days potential employers and clients check your social media profiles. Who wants to hire the guy with two bottles of tequila stuck in his mouth? Save that kind of shot to share privately in circles or closed groups. - Nakeva

Photographers’ Rights In Social Media | Lens Diaries™

Photographers’ Rights In Social Media | Lens Diaries™ | Social Media Photography | Scoop.it
The hype of Google+ and the number of photographers running through G+ land deserves some attention for metrics, social media sharing and terms of service. TwitPic made some changes to their TOS and now it seems the more you read for social media photo sharing sites the more it becomes apparent its just a conduit for stock photography on the fly. Snap a shot of a product or service that looks decent enough for media or the brand to use, add it to TwitPic, share on Twitter and bam! Your iPhone photo may be the next lead photo in an advertisement or media outlet article and you get nothing; if anything, maybe a text credit tha twill be spelled wrong in some way and not link to the original photo.

Scot Bourne wrote a post about the problems of using Google+ as photographers. Many have followed with differeing opinions. Roland Gomez on Lens Diaries writes a post to break down the TOS for Facebook and Google+ as a non-lawyer. Word a read.
--- [My $0.02. Nakeva] ---

"...But there are problems, especially for photographers, on these social media sites—photo rights! Yes, it’s funny how the social media that relies on “user uploaded photos” doesn’t truly understand how their rules impact photographers. So let’s look at my favorite of all social media providers, Facebook. I think they are currently the best at assuring photographers of their rights and others could learn from them. Facebook’s “Statement of Rights and Responsibility” is designed to protect them, rightfully so, but it protects photographers indirectly too..." - Lens Diaries

iPhone Postcard App Photogram New Popular Kid On The Block #SocialMediaPhotography | Social Media Photography | Scoop.it
When was the last time you sent a postcard? I bet you took a photo of the dolphin you saw on your beach trip and sent it from your mobile phone. Photogram, a new mobile photography app by Timelines is the app to use for creating postcard moments. Once again, for iPhone users only, but still a great app to try.

--- From Mashable/Jennifer Van Grove ---
Photogram gives iPhone photographers a way to share their mobile photos as artsy digital postcards. The app is an early hit on the App Store.

Three brands listed that use Instagram to manage and engage their product or services. Its all about social and instant moments. Instagram among other social photo sharing sites provides two-way possibilities: fans that snap the shots of a brand's product to share (free social media marketing) and brands that have their own account and share the work of their fans or their own shots and engage the crowd.

 

Have you come across any brand that prefers photos not be taken of their stores or products?
