The Web is absolutely awash with images. Of all kinds. They’re everywhere, forming a major part of the majority of websites, or at least ones which want to treat visitors to some eye candy to complement the wall of text that may accompany them.
Pinterest has shown just how important images are to most Web users. Millions of people have signed up to share images they love with others. For nothing other than the joy of sharing. What is it about sharing photos, both our own and other people’s, that we find so addictive? What are the best methods for getting photos on to the Web and in front of the eyes of other people?
This Week’s Question…
What Is Your Preferred Method For Sharing Photos Online?
We recently asked you to name the best alternative mobile photo-sharing apps you use (or could use if the recent Facebook acquisition goes badly) instead of Instagram. There are many, as Yaara’s article proves. But sharing photos online via a dedicated app isn’t the only way.
There are numerous websites offering the chance to upload and display photos, such as Flickr and Picasa. Social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter also offer the space and tools needed to share photos on the Web with a wide audience. The right Tumblr theme can make your personal blog resemble a professional portfolio. That’s just a small number of the many options we have open to us when sharing photos online.
We want to know what your preferred method is? Which app, site, or social network do you turn to when you have a photograph you feel other people need to see? We Ask You… now You Tell Us. All comments will be digested to form conclusions in a follow-up post next week.
‘We Ask [You] Tell Us‘ is a weekly column dedicated to finding out the opinions of MakeUseOf readers. We ask you a question and you tell us what you think. The question is open-ended and is usually open to debate. Some questions will be purely opinion-based, while others will see you sharing tips and advice, or advocating tools and apps for your fellow MakeUseOf Readers. This column is nothing without you, as MakeUseOf is nothing without you.
