For every professional photographer who takes issue with Instagram, there are many who are happily using the app to reach an additional photo-loving audience. They’re worth a follow.
Instagram, one of the darlings of the social media world, has proven to be an amazing success for its owners, with Facebook buying the company last year. Instagram’s founders aren’t the only one’s finding success through the social network. It’s users are also finding that Instagram has proven to be a key ingredient to a complete social media profile online, while others have created a network of interesting apps built around Instagram.
Videos have become only easier to compile, combine, and compose. YouTube crossed over to 1 billion users just a few days ago and despite the presence of very good alternatives like Vimeo, it is the de-facto home for online videos. So, it makes sense to upload your first photo slideshow to YouTube.
It’s easy to forget the free image hosts are still a viable and useful service for many people online. Practically every IM and SMS client supports the sending of images. Email obviously does too. But still, social communities like Reddit make it mainstream to not include some native upload-and-attach feature. Out of that, Imgur was born. It is now the most popular hub for image uploads on the web.
