We live in a social world—one globally connected through technology. Most of us maintain at least one social presence to network and find inspiration. Realistically, though, we’ve all registered on multiple sites, even if some of those accounts are left inactive.
Nevertheless, after a vacation, you might seek new social media platforms to share your photography. So we’ve featured a few sites below worth checking out on the way home!
Flickr is an immensely popular photo management and sharing platform. The company aims to attain two goals through the website:
- Help photographers get visibility;
- Introduce new and better ways oforganizing
When uploading pictures to Flickr, you can specify a license for others to use your work (i.e. creative commons or attribution). Doing so helps extend the reach of your photos.
Described as the “home for virtual storytelling,” Instagram is fast growing photo-sharing app. With a bevy of free filters and editing tools, you can snap and upload perfect pictures straight from your phone. Like Twitter, you amass followers the more you post great content.
Facebook needs little introduction. You likely have a profile with friends and family connected to it already. If not, for sharing personal photos, Facebook is an excellent place to start. Thanks to recent API integrations, you can also connect your Instagram account.
Post your photos alongside more than 80 million others! From amateur enthusiasts to professionals, the 500px community doubles as a marketplace for buying and selling inspirational photography.
As a unit within Adobe, the community here recognizes the importance of creative liberty and talent showcasing. Behance is a premier platform for uploading creative work and broadcasting it to a professional audience. If you take your travel photography seriously, maintaining a portfolio here could land you a freelance project or career.
