What’s The Best Way To Share Photos? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week we asked how you watch TV shows and movies most often. The results definitely show that times have changed, but also reflect how problematic geo-restrictions are when it comes to this kind of content.

Out of 545 votes in total, less than 2% said they rent/buy single episodes or movies from an online venue, 6% rent/buy physical media, 25% watch on TV or go to the cinema, another 25% (the exact same number of votes!) have a subscription on Netflix/Hulu or a similar service, and 42% of the voters said they most often download their TV shows and movies.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

By reading the comments, it’s obvious that many of the downloaders do so for lack of any other viable option. Hopefully, solutions like Netflix or Hulu will soon be available worldwide and to all users. Don’t forget to read the poll’s best comment by Hiew Yau, who won 150 reward points for the insight!

This week’s poll question is: What’s The Best Way To Share Photos?

Want to make some extra MakeUseOf reward points? The most useful comment on the poll will be awarded 150 points!

Sharing photos is one of the most common things we do online. If once upon a time we could show our memories only to those we actually met in person, today it’s super easy to share every little snapshot we take with the world. It’s so easy, in fact, that it’s sometimes hard to choose how to do it exactly. Is uploading an album to Facebook the best way? Or maybe sharing a Dropbox album with friends and family? Perhaps email is the simplest way to share? To each his own preference, and today you get the chance to tell us what it is.

As usual, it doesn’t matter if you use several of these, just vote for your favorite/most used option. Don’t forget to tell us in the comments what makes your choice the best, or if you voted for “other”, what your favorite sharing platform is.

    Dopbox and Skydive equally. I’m glad to see most of us use these services.

    I find facebook the best source for sharing photos, because you can share and tag friends in it and they can further tag their friends if they wanted to and so on. and you can also limit your sharing with the privacy also.

    For me it’s printing.
    because you can give it to the one you love and you can make more effort out of it.

      Interesting, and what do you do when you want to share photos with someone in a different country or just far away?

    • Gianna Marie Lanete

      Make more and more effort..
      Well, mailing still exist.
      I know it’s out of date but it can touch someone’s heart than online sharing of photos. Then the receiver will say: Oh, she really made an effort for me , I will keep these and treasure these for her. :D

    I use a blog and a Smugmug account. I just give the URLs to those I wish to share the photos with.
