6 (+1) social media sites for photographers.
Are you puzzled about your social media presence? There’s no denying it, social networks are a big part of our lives now and as a photographer I believe some are a better fit than others.
Here is a list of the 7 sites I think are the best for photographers.
Twitter is a strange beast to tame but it’s an amazing source of information. Of course, there’s not much you can say in 140 characters but that’s why they invented link shrinkers. — http://www.twitter.com/joshfassbind
I’m fairly new to Pinterest but boy am I spending time on that site. It is such an incredible source of inspiration. It’s actually a visual orgasm! Now for those copy cats out there, I said it’s a source of inspiration. That means you can be inspired by something you see and create something new by adding your personal touch. Don’t just copy! — http://www.pinterest.com/joshfassbind
Let’s be realistic for a minute. LinkedIn is great if you have a corporate job but as a creative, it pretty much sucks. That’s where Zerply kicks in. This is how they describe themselves: «Richer resume building and social networking designed for creative professionals.» Spread the word! — http://www.zerply.com/joshfassbind
Light is pretty new on the social scene and it’s really fun and creative. It’s an app that basically takes a bunch of successive photos to make a sort of video. Just try it! — http://www.lightt.com/joshfassbind
Some would argue Google+ is a great tool. Truth is, I just don’t get it. I don’t know if it’s the interface or what, I just can’t get around to like it and use it. — http://plus.google.com/113092398459067974804/
Of course, there are hundreds if not thousands of other social networks to join but I don’t think you want to spread too much. But if you believe I have forgotten an essential one, please feel free to let me know.
Also, if you are already present on one or several of these networks, please follow me and I’ll make sure to follow you back.
