10 Reasons Why Google+ Is Better for Social Photography Than Flickr

10 Reasons Why Google+ Is Better for Social Photography Than Flickr | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Good to know for Information Professionals as well.

 

"10 Reasons Why Google+ Is Better for Social Photography Than Flickr. Posted on November 28, 2011, 3:41 pm, by Thomas Hawk, under Flickr, Google, Google Plus. 10. A few months back I wrote a post “Flickr is Dead.”

 

Over the past few months the tide has begun shifting even more. Photographers are moving in mass from Flickr to Google+ as their primary photo sharing network.

Just like the social crowd moved from Webshots and Fotolog to Flickr a number of years ago, the social photography crowd is now moving from Flickr to Google+.

There are a number of reasons why this is happening and in this post I’ll outline some of the key ones."

Week 2: Take a photo with a mobile device: Instagram / Flickr app / Snapchat

Week 2: Take a photo with a mobile device:  Instagram / Flickr app / Snapchat | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Kim Tairi is the Associate Director, Information Management at Swinburne University. She loves her mobile. It has changed the way she works. Professional sharing and connecting is easier. Google her to find out more.


THINKING POINTS:

How could your library use photographs to promote library services, events and activities?Does your library Twitter account use Instaweather to provide a daily update?Do you have a permission form available so that when you take photographs of clients or events you have their agreement for those images to be used and shared online?How easy is it for clients to contribute digital photographs to your library collection (eg. local history)?Could you use photography in library programming (eg. how-to classes or competitions)?The Getty Museum celebrates the Instagram photographs taken by museum visitors by adding them to their Insta-Getty Pinterest board
