"Instagram is a very popular mobile photo sharing app that’s currently being used by over 80 million users. It was acquired by Facebook earlier this year, so it’s something that’s going to be around for quite some time. Instagram allows you to put all sorts of filters and effects on images and then share them with your network and the world. Here are ten ideas for ways you could use this immensely popular app for your library"

Musings about librarianship: Posting historical photos of your library - Facebook milestones, Dipity, Historypin and more | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
RT @ALIANational: Wondering how to share your photo collection? A University Librarian discusses some of the options.

 

Aaron Tay:

 

[...] "we do have some old photo collections showing the past rich history of the library and when Facebook pages moved to timeline view and began encouraging organizations to post milestones, I started to think about whether we could put these old photos and how best to display them.

Many libraries including ours also have collections of photos , photo archives etc, is there a better way to expose some of them?

I currently have four ideas, Dipity, Facebook pages as milestones, Historypin and Singapore Memory Project (Singapore only) mobile apps."
